Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - By the courtesy of the Honorary Minister (Senator McLachlan), I was given the opportunity to peruse this bill. It is, as he stated, simply a machinery measure to meet the position which will arise by reason of the transfer of the Seat of Government to Canberra. The bill seeks to vest in the Minister the power to determine from time to time the place in which the principal registry shall be situated. Realizing that we are now in a transition stage, I shall support the bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.

In committee:

Clause 1 agreed to.

Clause 2 (Situation of registries).
