Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - I may mention that Senator Keating spoke to me quite informally about this matter, and asked me to attend to his amendment. Beyond that, I cannot say that I have any authority from him. I know how the amendment arose. It seems to me that, by his amendment, which has been circulated, the Minister has met very largely the position, and provided some, if not all, the safeguards which Senator Keating desired to have inserted. Personally, I think that the Minister has fairly met the intention of Senator Keating.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
