Senator BARNES (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - Owing to an oversight, an important provision, included in other bounty bills, has been omitted. I, therefore, move -

That the following words be added to the clause: - " and the proportion in which bounty shall be payable to claimants who have complied with the prescribed conditions, in cases where there is not sufficient money available to pay the full bounty in respect of all the claims."

The amendment is necessary to enable the Government, in the event of the value of the production exceeding the amount of bounty at the rate provided of £20,000 a year, to pay to those who have produced the excess quantity a proportionate share of the bounty.
