Senator GIVENS (Queensland) - A verbal amendment is necessary in this clause. I move -

That after the word " the," first occurring line 9, the word " actual " be inserted.

The rate of the bounty on beet sugar is 60s. per ton, calculated on the cane giving 10 per cent. of sugar. The meaning of that is, that the cane must actually give that percentage - that it must not be a mere assay. There is no similar provision in regard to the beet-sugar, so that beet, assaying 30 per cent, of sugar, would have to be paid a bounty whether that amount was actually extracted ornot. It is only fair that the bounty should be paid on the actual sugar obtained.

Amendment agreed to.
