Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) (PostmasterGeneral) . - I move -

That the following new clause be inserted: - " 53a. Nothing in this act shall be deemed to diminish or affect the rights of any person under any contract or agreement made prior to the commencement of this act to which the Commonwealth is a party."

I have received legal advice that the bill may affect some current contracts between the Government and another painty, and as the violation or diminution of any existing contract .is not desired, the amendment is proposed to remove all ground for apprehension.

Suggest corrections
