Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - I think that the contention of the Leader of the Opposition is correct. I read the clause exactly as the honorable senator reads it. From the way in which it is worded I think that only those who agreed to sell between the 30th June and the 30th September, 19 10, will be entitled to the benefit of the concession. I think the Vice-President of the Executive Council would place the matter beyond all doubt if he agreed to strike out the words " after the thirtieth day of June, but." The clause would then provide that all who agreed to sell before the 30th September would be entitled to the concession. There is no reason why we should not put it beyond all doubt that those who agreed to sell before 30th June should get this concession. In view of the difference of opinion as to the effect of the clause, I think the Government might reconsider it.
