Senator GIVENS (Queensland) - I object to this way of doing business, because if we postpone these three parts, and deal with the remaining amendments, it might become necessary to go over the work which we had done. I fail to see what good pur-' pose can be served by taking this course. We ought to go through the schedule of amendments in a regular manner.

Senator KEATING(Tasmania - Honorary Minister).- I gave a good deal of consideration to the schedule of amendments, and had not a senatorand I been engaged in conversation, I should have taken the same course as Senator Pulsford has suggested, because, in my opinion, it is the most expeditious way of dealing with the amendments. We have dealt with seventy amendments of a formal, consequential, and drafting nature. " The amendments in clauses 85 to 99 can be dealt with in the course of a' few minutes, and then honorable senators can apply themselves, unhampered and untramelled by other considerations, to the large principles contained in the three new-' parts to which I have' referred.

Motion agreed to.

Amendments in clause 85, proposed new clause 9 1 a, and amendment in clause 92 agreed to.

Clause 97 (Aiders and abettors).

House of Representatives' Amendment.- Omit this clause.

Senator KEATING(Tasmania - HonoraryMinister). - The reason why this clause is omitted is that we are asked in the measure to insert another clause in its place- 78T, in Part VIIB.

Senator Clemons - That clause is not' quite an alternative to the one before us. It is rather an enlargement.

Senator KEATING - We do not re-' quire two clauses for the purpose. I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

Senator CLEMONS(Tasmania).- . There are obvious reasons for postponing this clause. It is unfortunate that the amending clause 78T differs materially. from the one before us.

Senator Keating - It is drawn in conformity with our recent legislation. We can fairly leave out this clause.

Motion agreed to.

Clause 99 -

1.   If the King is pleased to apply to the Com monwealth any law of the United Kingdom for carrying into effect any arrangement made with the Government of any foreign State for the mutual protection of trade marks, then any person who has applied for protection of any trade mark in the United Kingdom or the Isle of Man, or in any foreign State with which the arrangement has been made, shall be entitled to registra- tion of his trade mark under this Act in priority to other applicants.....

House of Representatives' Amendment.- After " If." insert " upon the request of the GovernorGeneral."

Motion (by Senator Keating) proposed -
