Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - Sub-clause 4 provides that within seven days from the passing of the resolution by the creditors affirming that the debtor shall execute a deed of assignment to a trustee, the debtor shall convey and assign his real and personal estate by deed to the trustee named in the resolution. I think that seven days is an unnecessarily long period to stipulate, and I desire that it should be reduced to two days. I trust that honorable senators will consider that this conveyance should be made as expeditiously as possible. Consequently I move -

That in sub-clause (4) the word " seven " be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " two."

Senator Gardiner - I shall resist the amendment. To my mind two days is too short a period.
