Mr McCAY (Corinella) .- I am glad that the Minister is willing to postpone the clause, because its meaning is open to doubt. It is, to use court, and not ordinary. English, to speak of rectifying something which does not exist, and, even though the Minister's view of the meaning of the provision may be correct, there will have to be a decision of the Supreme Court to the effect that the words used mean more than they mean in their ordinary acceptation before its correctness will be established. The English Act implies that there is something to be amended, whereas the clause speaks of rectifying something which does not exist.

Clause postponed.

Clauses 40 to 46 agreed to.

Clause 47 (Exhibiting of designs at official or international exhibitions).

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the Minister kindly explain the reason for this clause?
