Mr DEDMAN (Corio) (Minister for Post-war Reconstruction and Minister in charge of the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research) . - I move -

That the words ", after the publication of any such notice, any person who", be left out with a view to insert in lieu thereof the following words:- "any person who. after that date,".

This is a drafting amendment to conform with the phrasing in State bills. Its effect is that a date may be notified in the Gazette as the final date for delivery of that season's wheat. After that date, any of the season's wheat delivered must carry a declaration saying what season it belongs to. The idea is to prevent old wheat from being delivered with the newseason's wheat. This amendment enables the date for declarations to be notified in advance, whereas the words omitted would have made the declaration necessary immediately a notice was gazetted. However, it takes a little time for Gazette notices to be circulated through the wheat belt, so this amendment provides time for advice to be circulated before the date when the declaration is necessary.

Amendment agreed to.
