Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister of Home Affairs) . - Section 90 of the English Act provides that -

The Court may, on the application of any person aggrieved by the omission without sufficient cause, of the name of any person from any register kept under this act, or by any entry made without sufficient cause in any such register, make such order for making, expunging, or varying the entry, as the Court thinks fit; or the Court may refuse the application. . . .

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - That is almost the language of the suggested amendment.

Mr GROOM - It is the language of the clause.

Mr McCay - The words of the English Act refer to an entry in which, perhaps, a name related to the design does not appear.

Mr GROOM - They refer to the omission of the name of any person from the register without sufficient cause.

Mr McCay - They might refer to the omission of an assignment.

Mr GROOM - Yes, but they also cover anabsolute omission.

Mr McCay - Only the omissionof a part.

Mr GROOM - The omission to register an application entitled to be registered.

Mr McCay - I think that the section refers to cases in which part, but not the whole of, an entry has been made.

Mr GROOM - It deals with an entry wrongly omitted. However, as the honorable and learned members for Corinella and Angas have expressed doubts as to the effect of the provision, I shall agree to the postponement of the clause, in order that an amendment may be drafted which shall put its meaning beyond question.
