Mr BUCHANAN (McMillan) .- The Attorney-General may think there is no conflict, but the great difficult is that the patent holders believe there is a conflict.

Mr Snedden - I think the honorable member is going to talk about a different point.

Mr BUCHANAN - No, I am not. We had some words about this last night. As this matter has been raised by the honorable member for Parramatta (Mr. Bowen) I want to stress that there is implied in this provision a restriction. There will be a tendency not to want to do the research work which results in patents. A person will not be able to get more than one third of the market, because he will be limited through the monopolisation provisions. This is a real fear of people with patents.
