Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) .- I desire now to press my proposed motion that the clause be postponed until a later hour this day.

The CHAIRMAN - Such a motion would be in contravention of Standing Order 175, which provides that -

Any clause may be postponed unless the same has already been amended.

This clause has already been amended, and may not, therefore, he postponed.

Mr CALWELL - Would I be in order in moving it on the third reading?

The CHAIRMAN - That matter cannot be decided by the committee. It would have to be dealt with by the House.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 5 to 10 agreed to.

Clause 11 - (2.) A person who has been summoned to appear before the Commissioner, a Deputy Commissioner, a Magistrate or a Registrar shall not, without lawful excuse, and after tender of reasonable expenses, fail to appear in obedience to the summons.

Penalty: Fifty pounds.
