Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - I move -

That the words " or if he is engaged in winding up his estate, in consideration of his services," be left out.

My object is to enable the trustee in all circumstances, whether the bankrupt is employed or not, to make him an allowance - always, of course, subject to the authorization contained in the governing part of the clause. There will be no obligation on him to employ the bankrupt, and whether the bankrupt is employed or not, if it is necessary for him to have something for the support 'of his family, I want the trustee to have the power to make the allowance.
