Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) (Assistant Treasurer) . - I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

This is purely a drafting amendment, but the next amendment makes an alteration in the definition of " specified revenue." The purpose of this alteration is to provide for a situation that is more fully dealt with by an amendment of clause 7. Under the clause as it stood, the proclamation therein provided for applied to the whole of the revenues of a State; but if the amendment is made, the proclamation, notwithstanding that certain revenues are mentioned in the resolution of both Houses, may not include them all. It will not be necessary, if the amendment is made, to enforce the rights of the Commonwealth with respect to them all, but only with regard to those enumerated in the proclamation.
