Dr JENKINS (Scullin) - I move:

That the following new clause be inserted in the Bill: "21a. Section 53 of the Principal Act is amended by omitting from sub-section (1.) the words 'Eighty cents' and inserting in their stead the words 'Two dollars'.".

Clause 21 of the Act deals with the payment of Commonwealth benefits in the event of suspension or cancellation of registration of an organisation.


The CHAIRMAN - Order! That amendment also is out of order. We now move to amendment No. 18 in the Opposition's circulated list.

Proposed new clause 21b.


Mr REYNOLDS - I move:

That the following new clause be inserted in the Bill:

(18)

"21b. Section 58a of the Principal Act is amended by omitting from sub-section (1.) the words 'One dollar fifty cents' and insterting in their stead the words Two dollars'.".


The CHAIRMAN - Order! As this amendment would have the effect of increasing the expenditure I rule that it is out of order.


Mr REYNOLDS - In that case may 1 move that the clause be postponed?


The CHAIRMAN - No. The amendment sought to insert a new clause.


Mr REYNOLDS - May I speak to the point I would like to have spoken to?


The CHAIRMAN - Clause 21 has been disposed of and proposed new clauses 21a and 21b are out of order. We now move to a consideration of clause 22.

Clauses 22 and 23 - by leave - taken together.
