Mr CONROY (Werriwa) .- The form of the amendment which I suggested was, I think, rather better than that now submitted by the Minister of Trade and Customs but, under the circumstances, I am willing to accept the latter. The proposal which I submitted would have enabled an appeal to be made in all cases to the Full Court of three Justices ; and from that point of view I have not been able to obtain all I desired. I am satisfied that any one of the Justices, in a matter in which his own personal feelings or prejudices were likely to be involved, or when the effects might be so momentous as to paralyze a particular line of trade, would much prefer to be able to refer the case to the Full Court. Under the circumstances, I accept the amendment proposed by the Minister.
