Senator KEATING (Tasmania) (Honorary Minister) . - Might I point out to the honorable senator that the only thing that would follow in the case he supposes would be that the Minister would have to go through the procedure provided for in clause 40, as if no claim were made. It would cause him additional trouble if he refused the application! for an extension of time, whilst the claimant's rights would still be conserved.

Senator Millen - I see that that is so.

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 35 to 39 agreed to.

Clause 40 -

1.   Where any land has been acquired by compulsory process, and no claim for compensation nas been made within six months after the right to make the claim arose, and no application to the Minister for further time to make a claim has been granted or is pending, or if, such an application having been granted, no claim has been made within the time limited by the Minister, the Minister may apply to a Court to determine the amount of compensation payable.
