Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) . - I think the Attorney-General (Mr. Snedden) has completely overlooked the first half dozen words of sub-clause (1.) of clause 18, which are -

Except as otherwise provided by this Act

Sub-clause (2.) is another provision of the measure. The objection raised by the Attorney-General would be quite valid except for the fact that we have in the clause the words I have just quoted. Those words being considered, the objection is seen to be not a valid one at all. I think the Attorney-General might have second thoughts on this matter, and when he realises that his objection is without substance he may reconsider his decision not to accept the amendment of the honorable member for Isaacs (Mr. Haworth).

Amendment negatived.

Amendment (by Mr. Killen) negatived -

Omit sub-clause (4.)

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 19 to 21 - by leave - taken together, and agreed to.

Clause 22. (3.) Where this section applies in relation to proceedings that were being dealt with before the Tribunal constituted by three members, the President may, instead of giving a direction under the last preceding sub-section, direct that the hearing and determination, or the determination, of the proceedings be completed by the Tribunal constituted by the members other than the member referred to in sub-section (1.) of this section.
