Senator PULSFORD (New South Wales) - The wording of the sub-clause struck me as being very objectionable. I think it would be better to use the expression "mark or part thereof," instead of the expression "mark or matter therein." The word "matter" is very much out of place where it is used here, therefore I move -

That the amendment be amended by the omission of the words " matter therein," with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " part thereof."

Senator KEATING(Tasmania - Honorary Minister). - The draftsman, who has been watching the. Bill very carefully in both Houses, informs me that the words "matter therein" are used1 in the section of the English Act, and that in other parts of this Bill the same words are used in connexion with the mark.

Amendment of the amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Motion agreed to.

Remaining amendments in clause 24 agreed to.

Amendment in clause 26 agreed to.

Clause 29 (Associated Trade Marks) -

House of Representatives' Amendment.-Before sub-clause 1 insert new sub-clause : - " (ia) Where application is made for the registration of a trade mark so nearly resembling a trade mark of the applicant who is already on the register as to be likely to deceive or cause confusion if used by a person other than the applicant, the Registrar may require as a condition of registration that the trade marks shall be entered on the register as associated trade marks."
