Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) - - The Government have considered the position which would arise out of such an amendment, and have come to the conclusion that it would not be to the advantage of the Commonwealth, nor would it tend to the proper administration of the measure. We consider that it was only fair to give the privilege conferred by the clause to those who lease land before_.the commencement of the measure, but I do not think that it would be advisable to extend the privilege to those who lease at a subsequent date.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with further amendments.
