Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - I move -

That the words " twelve months," in paragraph b, be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " three years."

As my amendment has already been spoken to I need not enlarge upon it. I draw attention, however, to the fact that it is borrowed from the New Zealand Act, and that, if accepted, it will enable persons to take a trip for a period longer than six months. I think that the remarks made by Senator Symon rather strengthen my contention that if it be passed, a man will not require to go every year to the Commissioner to get leave, but once in three years will suffice.
