Sir WILLIAM LYNE - In reply to the honorable member's questions -

1.   Yes. All persons in the Commonwealth desirous of obtaining letters patent are on the same footing. All can make application through the post, personally, or by a patent attorney, or agent.

2.   Not necessarily. Matters of small importance could be settled by post, but in the event of any serious dispute arising, say, for instance, opposition, it would be necessary for the parties to be represented by a patent attorney or agent, or to attend personally.

3.   Yes.
