Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL (Warringah) . - I have frequently expressed my opposition to government by regulation, and, in this instance, there is no reason why there should be a regulation in respect of the apportionment of the bounty as between the landlord and the share-farmer. Surely there is no objection to setting out in the bill the apportionment as between the two parties concerned. The Government knows what it is doing, or it does not. It is hardly conceivable that it should have introduced this legislation without giving consideration to this matter. If it is intended that the bounty shall be apportioned according to the arrangement existing between the landlord and the share-farmer, that should be stated, in the bill.

Mr PARKER MOLONEY (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Does not the honorable member think that the bounty will be apportioned according to existing arrangements?

Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL - If that is to be done, why not state it definitely in the bill?

Mr PARKER MOLONEY (HUME, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It may be a matter of verbal arrangement, or of a lien on the wheat.

Mr ARCHDALE PARKHILL - So as to make the position perfectly clear. I move -

That the words " in such manner as is prescribed " be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof, the words " in proportion to the interests of the share-farmers in the wheat or the proceeds thereof ".

If the Minister can show that the amendment is objectionable, I shall not press it.
