Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister for Works and Railways) . - I move -

That the following new clause be added: - " 15. Section 41 of the principal Act is amended by omitting the words ' or article ' and inserting in their stead the words 'articles, book, or document '."

Under section 41 the Court has power to order inspection of premises, and the person authorized may " inspect and view any work, material, machinery, appliances, or article therein." It is now proposed to leave out the word "article," and to insert instead " articles, book, or document." It has been found in operation that the section, as it stands, affords too narrow a scope of inspection. This will possibly meet the suggestion made by the honorable member for Adelaide (Mr. Blundell).

Proposed new clause agreed to.
