Mr GLYNN (Angas) - I think that the honorable and learned member for Corinella should be satisfied with the arrangement suggested by the Attorney-General. I am almost prepared to leave the clause as it stands. I would not put it in the power of one party to say that he would not use the Law Officer. It must be remembered that the Court referred to is the Supreme Court of Victoria, or the High Court, and, probably, parties in a distant State like Western Australia would not like to be dragged to Victoria.

Mr McCay - They would be dragged to Victoria if the appeal were to the Law Officer.

Mr GLYNN - But that appeal would be a much more simple affair than an appeal to the Court.

Mr Isaacs - Whatever may be. the result of the appeal to the Law Officer, the dissatisfied party may appeal again to the Court, so that I am prepared to give both parties the option in the first instance.
