Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) .- I move-

That after paragraph (d) sub-section1, the following paragraph be inserted: - "(dd) in advancing money for the purpose of encouraging gold mining in the Commonwealth."

There is a whole host of primary industries to which savings bank money is intended to be devoted; industries such as wool, grain, butter, cheese, meat, fish, fruit, hops, cotton and sugar, and others which may be "prescribed." But the gold-mining industry is omitted, unless later on it may be prescribed. I want it to be prescribed in the bill itself.

Progress reported.
