Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

On reference to section 112 of the Trade Marks Act of 1905, honorable senators will see that the first part of the amendment of the other House makes very little difference other than that it adopts the language of the provision in the Imperial Act of 1905. Section 112 of our principal Act was copied from the famous Imperial Act of 1853. The new provision adopted in 1905 by the Imperial Parliament means the same thing, but it is , put in a different way. The object of proposed new clause 30 is to bring section 112 of the principal Act. into conformity with the latest Imperial Act. The object of proposed new clause 31 isto amend section 113 of the principal Act for the purpose of putting the Arms of the Commonwealth in the same position as the Royal Arms. That is, I think, a very wise thing to do. If there is no objection I should like the amendment to be dealt with in one motion, but, of course, if any honorable senator wishes to submit an amendment I shall ask the Committee to deal with the several paragraphs- separately.

Motion agreed to.
