Mr. DAVIS:

As regards the point just

raised by my hon. friend (Mr. Morphy), I notice the wording "shall be duly appointed." I presume that means shall be appointed by the Government because by subclause (b) of the agreement the shareholders do not exercise any powers of voting or choosing after this agreement has come into force. The shareholders have abrogated all their powers of action by the agreement.

Mr. DAVIS:

With regard to subsection

(e) of the Bill, in the present state of feeling of the shareholders it is quite possible that they might not appoint a committee. If they do not appoint that committee can there not be provision made, by the Government or some one else, for deductions to pay their share of the costs of the arbitration?

Mr. DAVIS:

So far that is good. I

have in my mind another possibility, that perhaps under section 2, when we come to it, it would be possible that the company and the Government would come to an agreement and yet the shareholders stand aloof, in which case, again there should be some provision for the costs subsequently to be incurred because it is possible that the Government might accept their arrangement under clause 2 and go on. The other point as to costs is a small detail afer all.

Mr. DAVIS:

As regards reproduction

of maps, especially blue-prints, at one time it was not possible to make these. They have a large machine there which simply runs the paper through like a large type press, making the copies in that way for a very few cents, whereas formerly they had cost very much more.
