Mr JOWETT (Grampians) .- I desire to submit two amendments to this clause. I wish to have the word "may" omitted, with a view to insert the word "shall," and to insert the words "in each State" after the word "Boards."

Mr Hughes - We cannot accept the first suggested amendment.

Mr JOWETT - What is the objection to it?

Mr Hughes - It would take all control out of the Director's hands. For all practical purposes " may " is the same as " shall " in these Acts, but there must be discretion somewhere, and it should rest with the Government of the country.

Mr JOWETT - Then, to save time, I shall not persist with the first amend- ment, andwill content myself with moving -

That, after the word " Boards " the words " in each State " be inserted.

Amendment agred to.

Proposed new clause, as amended, agreed to.
