Question so resolved in the negative.

Amendment negatived.

Senator STEWART(Queensland). - I desire to remodel this clause by making two amendments in paragraph a. I move -

That the word " more," line 7, be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the word " less."

The second amendment which I intend to move is, the omission of the word " prescribed," in order to substitute " European." The object of the amendment I have moved is to secure that the passage dictated shall consist of at least fifty words. Under the Bill as it stands, a test of one, half-a-dozen, or twenty word's might be applied, and the intention of the legislation defeated.
