Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - If Senator McColl looks closely into the clause he will find that it would not apply as he imagines. It would only apply to the engagement of officers in Australia.

Senator McColl - I notice that a cablegram was sent on the 22 nd October, 1908, in which the Deakin Government said that they were prepared to amend the Bill so as to meet the views of the Board of Trade.

Senator McGREGOR - It the honorable senator will read the despatch a little further he will find that the opposition of the Board of Trade weakened almost to vanishing point. The correspondence indicates that there will be no serious objection to this proposal from the Board ot Trade.
