Senator SAMPSON (Tasmania) . - I move -

That the amendment be agreedto.

It is unusual to require the President to sign copies of bills to be presented for assent, and, in practice, it has been found to present difficulties, owing to the time necessary for obtaining a fair print of the bill. The Standing Orders of the House of Representatives require the signature of the Clerk only. I understand that this is also the practice in most other parliaments.

Motion agreed to.
