Senator McLACHLAN (South Australia) (Honorary Minister) . - At the conference it was pointed out that the section which it is proposed to amend is defective as it contains no declaration as to the effect of the order. Section 124 appears to contain adequate provision for cases where the debts of a bankrupt are paid in full. The proposed new clause will give the necessary publicity and provide for recording in the proper offices the fact of the discharge, for which there is at present no provision in the act.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 15 agreed to.
