Mr GABB (Angas) .- The proposed new sub-clause indicates the manner in which the business of Parliament is being conducted. This amendment, consisting of about 100 words, with only one comma and one full stop, was circulated less than twenty minutes ago, and in the interim five important clauses have been disposed of. When honorable members are allowed so little opportunity to understand proposed amendments it is little wonder that the legislation of this Parliament has to be amended year after year.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 7 -

The rate of bounty payable in respect of any wheat shall be the amount per bushel by which the price specified in the certificate issued by a licensee in respect of that wheat falls short of the prescribed price, but not exceeding in any case sixpence per bushel.

That the words " price specified " he omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " free-on-board equivalent of the price per bushel as stated."
