Senator KEATING (Tasmania.) (Honorary Minister) . - I agree with Senator Best that it might be desirable to have some provision analogous to that in the British Act, in regard to the distribution of the purchase money amongst the persons holding various interests in the same piece of land. This clause enables the Commonwealth to pay the money to the person who is empowered to sell and convey the land, and clause n deals with the application of purchase money, when it is paid to a person having a partial interest. I have -no objection to both clauses being postponed. In the meantime, I shall have the matter considered, and, if possible, some amendments brought down for consideration.

Clause postponed.

Clause 11 postponed.

Clauses 12 and 13 agreed to.

Clause 14 (Modes of acquisition).
