Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - I have given notice of an amendment in this clause with the object of making it apply to assignees or trustees in a composition. The clause is a restriction of the right of creditors under execution or attachment. It is desirable to make the law uniform. The Committee has already decided not to protect the man who advances money on the security of a bill of sale. Are we going to protect the execution creditor if a man happens to assign his estate or compound with his creditors? If that is not covered by this clause, I propose to move the amendment of which I have given notice, to the following effect: -

That after the word "bankruptcy" the following words be inserted: - "or the assignee for creditors generally, or the trustee in a composition under this Act."
