Mr EWING (Richmond) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) .- - I suggest to the Committee that it would be wise to specify a date when this Bill should come into operation. We might fix a tentative date - say, 1st October next - upon the understanding that if, after full consideration of the difficulties and interests involved, it is necessary to alter it, that alteration can be effected in the Senate. Consequently I move -

That the following new clause be inserted : - " This Act shall come into force on the 1st October, 1906."

Proposed new clause agreed to-.
