Mr GROOM (Darling Downs) (Minister of Home Affairs) . - Clause 17 provides for the registration of any new and original design which has not been published in Australia. Publication may be of two kinds. A design may be made public by its user, or by making it known to the public in some other way ; and, if this clause were not inserted, it might be held that the displaying of a design at a public exhibition prior to an application for registration had destroyed the right to register. As such exhibitions are held for the promotion of industrial interests, this is not considered desirable.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 48 (International arrangements for protection of designs).
