Mr McCAY (Corinella) - Like the honorable and learned member, for Indi, I should be very loth to agree to this provision if I thought that it could .conceivably mean what the leader .of' the Opposition suggests. Evidently .he assumes that when the Pull Court of a State ,has decided in favour of .a plaintiff -who has proceeded against the Commonwealth, the 'Commonwealth will -give -notice of .appeal, but immediately afterwards '-will apply to have its own notice of appeal stopped. His position implies that upon Monday the Commonwealth might .ask for leave to appeal, and on Tuesday might request the Full Court to stay its own .appeal, and that the Court would be sure to,comply with the request.

Mr Reid - I must ask my honorable and learned friend to observe the word " shall " in reference to the application. Whatever that may mean, it certainly means that the court must do something.
