Mr PATERSON (Gippsland) (Minister for Markets) . - I move -

That the words " amount as the prescribed authority thinks fit," sub-clause 4, be omitted with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " amounts as are approved by the Minister."

It is felt that, if the bill were passed in its original form, too much would be left to the discretion of the prescribed authority.

Mr Scullin - The prescribed authority could operate in one State only.

Mr PATERSON - That is so. It is considered wise to change the wording of the sub-clause in the manner that I have indicated, so that the Commonwealth Minister may have a check upon what may be done.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment (by Mr. Paterson) agreed to-

That the word "granted," sub-clause (4), be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " issued."
