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

That the amendment be agreed to.

I may explain that the amendment is con< sequential on the omission of the clauserelating to newspapers' cable messages.. The Senate agrees to the omission of that clause, with' the consequential amendment that in sub-clause 3, after the word' " right," the following words shall be left out, "nor the right of the proprietor of a newspaper or news agency to bring actions or suits,or institute proceedings for infringements of the exclusive right conferred upon him by section 34 of this Act."

Mr Reid - That leaves everything as before.

Mr GROOM - That is so.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
