Question - That form O be left out - put. The Committee divided.




Question so resolved in the negative.

Amendment negatived.

Form R - Verbally amended.

Mr. BAMFORD(Queensland). - I direct the attention of the Committee to the instructions which appear at the side of this form. If honorable members will look at the instruction opposite the figure 3, they will see that it reads -

The name and description of each person to whom any sum is paid, and the reason for which it was paid to him must be set out separately.

In the instructions opposite the figures 4, 5, and 7 the words "the name and description of each person " are repeated. I think that the phraseology of these instructions is confusing. I imagine that to any but a legal mind it would seem that the description of a man should have some reference to his height, weight, the colour of his hair, and so on. I think that some alteration should be made, and I move -

That form R be amended by leaving out the words "and description" in marginal notes to paragraphs 3, 4, and 5, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words "occupation and address."

Amendment agreed to.

Title agreed to.

Bill reported with amendments.

Mr. GROOM(Darling Downs - Minister of Home Affairs). - I move -

That the Bill be recommitted for the purpose of reconsidering clauses9A, 15, 17, 27, 26B, 28, 42A, 47, 50, 51, and form B.

Amendment (by Mr. Chanter) proposed -

That the motion be amended by the insertion after "47" of "48 and 49."
