Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - Although we have not yet reached clause 98 we have heard sufficient to see that it meets with the approval of the Committee; if so, Senator Keating's amendment will cut right across it, and when we reach clause 98 the Minister may find the ground cut from under his feet. The creditors are the most important people in these matters, and should certainly be consulted. The amendment would rob the creditors of the right to say whether the bankrupt shall be employed in the business.

Senator ALBERT GOULD (NEW SOUTH WALES) -Colonel Sir Albert-Gould. - Why not give the creditors the right of objection if they see fit?

Senator DE LARGIE - Clause. 98 already gives it. It would be foolish, before reaching clause 98, to accept an amendment which would practically destroy it.
