Mr CROUCH (Corio) - I wish to move the recommittal of clause 92, in order to enable me to submit a new sub-clause, to be known as sub-clause 2. I gave notice of my amendment to the late Government, and" when the Bill was originally discussed in Committee, the honorable and learned member for Ballarat supported a proposition which I then made to so amend the clause as to enable a witness to give evidence in camera if there was any danger of the disclosure of a trade secret. The then Government promised to recommit the clause if I desired them to do so, and I am glad to say that I subsequently prepared an amendment which the late AttorneyGeneral was able to accept, and which met, not only my own wishes, but those of the honorable and learned member for Ballarat. I think that when it is put forward the Committee will agree to it.

Mr McCay - What is the amendment?

Mr CROUCH - I understood that when I first mentioned my proposal it also had the support of the honorable and learned member for Corinella.

Mr Reid - I do not object to the recommittal.

Amendment (by Mr. G. B. Edwards) agreed to -

That after the word " clauses," line 5, the figures "32A," be inserted.

Amendment (by Mr. Crouch) agreed to -

That after the figures " 90 " the figures " 92 " be inserted.
