Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - Does the honorable senator, by the amendment, mean that the trustee should have the right to deal in any way he pleases with a debt due to the bankrupt?

Senator Keating - Yes, up to £100. Any amount exceeding that sum would be covered by the provisions of paragraph f of clause 97.

Senator LYNCH - Is there any special reason why the amount should be fixed at £100 ? That seems to me rather a large sum.

Senator Keating - The honorable member will see that a compromise could be effected, but for the amendment, in a case where the debt was over £100 only upon a resolution of a general meeting of creditors, or of the Committee of Inspection, or by application to the Court.

Senator Gardiner - The Government have no objection to the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
