Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (Parramatta) (Attorney-General) . - I should like to correct the impression that the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Whitlam) conveyed in connexion with the uniform company legislation. The initiative in that matter was not taken by the Commonwealth, but by the State of Victoria, and it is only right that that State should have the .credit for it.

So far as the others matters which he mentions are concerned, i do not go along with him on his case in regard to the things that should -be rendered uniform, and I otherwise would not wish to add to what 1 said earlier.

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 36 to 50 - by leave - taken together, and agreed to.
