Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - The schedule, as printed in the bill, needs slight amendment in order to make it quite clear that loss of both eyes, loss of both hands, loss of both feet, loss of a hand and a foot, total and incurable loss of mental powers involving inability to work, and total and incurable paralysis of limbs or mental powers shall be regarded as total incapacitation and be treated as such.

Senator Rae - I think that the amount of the compensation payable should also be placed in the column opposite those injuries.

Senator DALY - Although the amount is already set out in the second schedule, I have no objection to following the honorable senator's suggestion.

Senator McLachlan - I think all that is necessary is to rectify a printer's error by the removal of a comma inadvertently inserted after "paralysis of limbs or mental powers".
