Mr Isaacs - It provides for the rectification of the register.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Could the register be rectified, if there were no entry in it?

Mr Isaacs - If something has been omitted that should have been entered, the register can be rectified by making an entry.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - If an application for registration is refused, there will be no record of it in the register.

Mr Isaacs - If a man's name should be on a share register, and is not there, he can apply to have the register rectified by the insertion of his name. "
