Dr EVATT (BARTON, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Attorney-General) - I give notice that, at the next sitting, I shall move -

That leave be given to bring in a bill for an act to remove doubts as to the validity of certain Commonwealth legislation, to obviate delays occurring in its passage, and to effect certain related purposes, by adopting certain sections of the Statute of Westminster, 1931, as from the commencement of the war between His Majesty the King and Germany.

I have prepared a memorandum on this subject, and it will be distributed to honorable members before the matter comes up for consideration.
