Mr McCAY (Corinella) - The AttorneyGeneral, by interjection, has referred to the probability of our having in each State a sub-office of the Department of Trade Marks. I do not see any provision in the Bill to provide for that. Clause 11 sets forth that the Commissioner of Patents shall be the Registrar of Trade Marks, and authorizes the appointment of a deputy registrar. Then clause 12 provides for the establishment of the Trade Marks Office. Turning to clause 4, Ave see that reference is made to " the ' ' Trade Marks Office, and to "the " State in which the Trade Marks Office is situate. It would thus appear that provision is made for only one office. I draw the attention of the AttorneyGeneral to this point, in order that he may make the amendments necessary to carry out the purpose which he indicated.
