Senator McLACHLAN (South Australia) . - I move-

That after the word " made " the words " in duplicate " be inserted.

As honorable senators will recall there was considerable controversy with regard to a proposal whichI made that the original assignment should be kept in the office of the company. It was urged that we should follow the old practice. The purpose of my amendment is to provide for a file of the assignment in duplicate. Consequential amendments will stipulate that the assignment shall be registered by being left in duplicate with the policy at the office of the company in the State or territory in which the policy is registered, and the secretary shall retain the duplicate of the assignment in the office of the company and return the policy with the endorsement thereon signed by himself and the assignment to the person leaving it. This provision will be a safeguard against forgery.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause also consequentially amended, and, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 94 verbally amended and, as further amended, agreed to.
