Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- A.n extension to the date suggested by Senator Duncan-Hughes and Senator Badman would be insufficient, because, in many districts, hay-cutting is not concluded until late in December. A farmer has to make a sworn declaration that he has used a certain Quantity of superphosphate and if he does not know the proportion of his crop to be cut for hay, he cannot make the necessary declaration. A producer should be permitted to make a sworn declaration covering the quantity which lie expects to cut and have the right to make a further declaration, if necessary, covering a larger proportion.
