Mr McCOLL (Echuca) . -I move -

That the following proviso be added : - " Provided that the bounties shall be divided, as prescribed, so that they will be paid to the grower on production of a product fit for treatment, and the person who converts such raw product into a finished article."

The amendment adopted at the instance of the Minister does not provide that the bonus shall be paid at any particular time, and my object is to secure that the producer of the raw material shall obtain his reward as soon as his work is done. There is no provision of that kind in the Bill. The Minister in charge of the measure, on Friday last expressed the opinion that my amendment would be an improvement, and agreed to accept it.

Sir William Lyne - I accept it.
