Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - I move -

That the following words be added to the clause, " at the date of the acquisition of the land."

I think that the amendment requires no further explanation. It is perfectly obvious that if we are going to take the value of the owner's interest in his improvements when we are compensating him, we do not want to take his interest to-day, as the clause now reads, but at the date when we actually acquire the land for a public purpose.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 10 agreed to.

Clause 11 -

No Crown lands in the Territory shall be sold or disposed of for any estate of freehold, except in pursuance of- some contract entered into before the commencement of this Act.
