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

That the amendment be agreed to.

The object of the amendment is to make it perfectly clear that, so far as specified revenue is concerned, the definition of "the State" applies in clauses 5 and 6 as well as the clauses which are already mentioned. Behind this amendment is a fairly big principle, which received consideration when the bill was before this chamber. I can understand that honorable members opposite may object to the amendment, because it will have the effect of preventing a State from defeating the object of the measure by diverting its revenue to semi-governmental institu tions. The Government insists upon the amendment.
