Mr REID - The minutes referred to in the clause would not be judicial minutes. In reply to what the honorable member has said about the destruction of records, I would point out that we are now beginning a new state of things, and that the confusion which has existed in the past, will not continue. I cannot be responsible for what has occurred in the past, but we shall have control over the future administration of the Territory, and so long as the new minutes are properly kept I think that all that is necessary will be done.

Mr Bamford - Will the Prime Minister allow any clauses to which honorable members take exception to be recommitted?

Mr REID - Certainly. I have no desire to push the Bill through too rapidly. I will give every facility for recommittal to any honorable member who, on reconsideration, sees any need for asking for it.

Clause agreed to.
