Mr LATHAM (Kooyong) .- Sub-clause 2 appears to be inconsistent with sub-clause 1. The drafting of the second sub-clause is, I think, a little difficult, but probably the clause, as drafted, will work quite well. In the case of share-farmers, it is usual for only one partner to produce the wheat, the other supplying the laud and some of the implements, and, perhaps, the seed and manure also - according to the arrangement made between them. The description of two such persons as " share-farmers " might conceivably be open to objection, but as the meaning is plain, it is probably unnecessary to alter the wording.

I suggest, however, that it would be better if the two sub-clauses were made one, and that at the end of sub-clause 1, as it now stands, the words " provided that " be inserted. The second sub-clause would then appear plainly as a proviso to the first sub-clause. I, therefore, move -

That the figure " ( 1 ) " be omitted; and that the figure " (2) " be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " Provided that ".

Mr PARKER MOLONEY (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I accept the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.
