Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) .-I move-

That the words " or otherwise " be left out.

My amendment simply means that if a father has earned a medal on active service he shall be at liberty to say to his son, who is perhaps about to settle in a distant country, " Take this medal and keep it always as an object-lesson to you." Under the clause in its present form he could not do that, because he could not give away his medal, and his son could not receive it.

Senator E J RUSSELL (VICTORIA) - Why not insert the words " for profit " ?

Senator CHATAWAY - I am quite willing to do that if it will meet with the Minister's approval.

Senator Pearce - I am prepared to accept the amendment which has been suggested by Senator E. J. Russell.

Senator CHATAWAY - Then I ask leave to withdraw my amendment, with a view to submitting another.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendment(by Senator Chataway) proposed -

That after the word "otherwise" the words "for valuable consideration" be inserted.
