Mr KILLEN (Moreton) (12:19 PM) .I move -

At the end of the clause add the following paragraph: - "and (e) to allow costs where appropriate.".

About the only discretion not open to the Tribunal under this Bill is the discretion to award costs where applicable. It may be expected that some of the proceedings before this body will be long drawn out. The case involving locked coils, which was heard in the United Kingdom Trade Practices Court, lasted for 33 days. I submit to the Attorney-General that grounds exist for accepting my amendment. One can readily visualise circumstances in which costs should be awarded. I think the amendment is reasonable. I trust that it meets with the same fate as befell my last amendment.
