Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - In reply to the first question by Senator McLachlan, the matter will be looked into. I suggest that inquiries should be made as to whether the ruling in the Bunnerong case does not preclude the Commonwealth Government from manufacturing to sell. The attention of the Government having been drawn to the matter, I feel sure that, if the facts are as stated by the honorable senator, it will grant the relief sought.

A deputation recently waited on me, and I understand also waited on the Acting Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition in another place, urging the desirability of amending the bankruptcy law. If these is nothing contentious in the proposals of the deputation, I see no reason-

Senator McLachlan - The deputation asked merely for a technical amendment of the law.

Senator DALY - -The Acting SolicitorGeneral proposes to visit Sydney this week-end to inquire into this matter, among others. If he discovers that the position is as set out by the deputation, and the Opposition is satisfied with the. Government's proposals, amendments will bc introduced seeing, that, in that case, they can be dealt with in a few minutes.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
