Mr E RILEY (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) . - A share-farming agreement may. provide for the apportionment of the proceeds of the crop Between the owner of the land and the share-farmer. The landlord may contend that the agreement does not cover the bounty. Provision should be made that, notwithstanding any agreement in existence at the passing of this bill, the share-farmer shall receive half the bounty payable on the wheat produced by him.

Mr Latham - If he is nos entitled under the agreement to a half share of the wheat, how can he be entitled to half of the bounty ?

Mr Killen - Sometimes the sharefarmer gets two-thirds of the proceeds of the wheat. In such cases the payment of only half the bounty would be unfair.

Mr E RILEY (SOUTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - The share-farmer should participate in the bounty in proportion to his share in the wheat.
