Mr SNEDDEN (Bruce) (AttorneyGeneral) . - Mr. Chairman, I move -

After clause 104, insert the following new clause: - " 104a. - (1.) The Commissioner shall, within sixty days after the end of each year, furnish to the Attorney-General, for presentation to the Parliament, a report with respect to his operations in that year. " (2.) In this section, ' year ' means a year ending on the thirtieth day of June, but does not include a year that ended before the date fixed by Proclamation under sub-section (2.) of section 2 of this Act.".

The purpose of this proposed new clause is to provide that the Commissioner of Trade Practices shall present to the Parliament an annual report. This should prove very valuable in enabling the Parliament to examine the work of the Commissioner.
