Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - - I have no objection to the Bill, although I hardly appreciate its necessity. Whilst any objections Qf which notice is officially taken mav have to be lodged in writing, the Commissioner has the power, which he has no doubt exercised, to obtain information from whomsoever he chooses.

Mr Groom - Not after his report has once been posted.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I do not think that even then the Commissioner might not, if he thought fit, revise the proposed distribution. However, I do not object to the measure, because, at most, it can only make assurance doubly sure.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and reported without amendment.

Motion (by Mr. Groom) agreed to -

That the Standing Orders be suspended so as to allow the third reading to be moved this day.
