Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - This amendment seems to me to open up rather a large question. The clause as it originally stood provided that if the King was pleased to apply to the Commonwealth any law of the United Kingdom in respect of trade marks, he could do so. The amendment provides that the King can only act if the Governor-General requests him to do so. Surely that is an alteration of principle. I am not seriously alarmed, but I should like to know what is the necessity for the proposed amendment.
