Mr ISAACS (Indi) (Attorney-General) . - I intend to consider that point. At present my inclination is not to accept the suggestion, but I will consider how it will operate. The object of the amendment before the Committee is to meet an objection which the honorable member for North Sydney pointed out, that the insertion of the words " in the opinion of the jury " in this particular place connects the opinion of the jury with one particular fact only - the preservation of industry ; and it would appear that we do not wish the jury to express an opinion on the other facts of the case. The' mere mention of it in this particular place might be an indication that that was the only thing which we wished the jury to decide.

Amendment agreed to.
