Federal Evidence Bill
Federal Evidence Bill.
Mr. Berry moved for leave to introduce a bill "to facilitate the proof throughout the federation of Acts of the Federal Council and of Acts of the Parliaments of the various Australasian colonics, and of judicial and official documents, and of the signatures of certain public officers in matters relating to the service of civil process of and to the enforcement of judgments of the Courts of the Australasian colonies, and to the enforcement of criminal process." In doing so, he said I do not think it is necessary to say anything in support of this motion. The title of the bill is so full that it, in itself, explains the object for which it is brought in.
Mr. Lee Steere seconded the motion.
The motion was agreed to, and the bill was introduced and read a first time.
The bill was ordered to be printed, and the second reading fixed for Friday.
