Senator BARNES (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - I think that the honorable senator is unnecessarily troubled about this matter. Clause 4 (3) makes provision along the lines suggested by him. A person who delivers his wheat to a railway station, and a person who delivers it to a miller, will each receive the same amount.

Senator Sir Hal Colebatch - Clause 5 provides that, in the case of wheat delivered to a miller, only the cost incurred in delivering it shall be deducted.

Senator BARNES - Possibly, the honorable senator is right. We can deal with the matter when postponed clause 2 is again before us. I now move -

That after the word " delivery ", sub-clause 2, the words " or in the case of wheatso delivered prior to the commencement of this act, within sixty days after such commence ment " be inserted.

That would bring the clause into line with the previous clause, as amended.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 6 and 7 agreed to.

Clause 8 (Security).

Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE (Western Australia) [7.15]. - When provision was made for the repayment of advances there had to be some security for the persons by whom advances were made, otherwise the advance might not be repaid. As that provision with respect to repayments has been deleted, this clause should not be necessary.
