In Committee(Consideration of Senate's message, vide page 6528).

Motion (by Mr. Austin Chapman) proposed -

That the Committee agree to the Senate's amendment of the agreement.

Mr. JOSEPHCOOK (Parramatta).I understand that the Senate has fixed a definite period for the agreement, and has provided that at its expiration the Eastern Extension Company shall not be permitted to revert to the conditions which existed prior to this agreement being made. That was the original intention, but owing to the defective drafting of the agreement the Senate has. considered it necessary to place the matter beyond all doubt. Asthat is the only effect of the alteration suggested, I shall support the motion.
