Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) .-I think the Treasurer should give us some reasons why it is oroposed to amend section 45 of the principal Act in this wav.

SirJOHNFORREST (Swan- Treasurer) [9.59]. - It is merely intended to give a little more time for making surcharges, by omitting from sub-section 2 of section 42 of the principal Act the word "three" between the words "within " and "months," and by inserting in lieu thereof the word " six."

Clause agreed to.

Clause 10 agreed to.

Clause 11 -

After section forty-five of the Principal Act the following section is inserted : - "45A. The Auditor-General may, with the consent of the Treasurer, dispense with all or any part of any detailed audit of any accounts, but not with any appropriation audit of those accounts. The consent of the Treasurer shall be given only in cases in which he considers that there are circumstances which render a detailed audit under this Act unnecessary."
