The Pamphlet Collection of Sir Robert Stout: Volume 60
The Act of 1883, having been fairly tested by the experience of the past two years, and reports having come under the notice of the Committee of the necessity of certain amendments, they took steps to make careful inquiries into the working of the Act, which, in the main, they find to be satisfactory; but, at the same time, it is evident that there have been omissions in framing the rules of procedure, which it is desirable to rectify, and provision should also be made for effecting private deeds of arrangement. A separate report is being prepared by the Committee for presentation to the House of Representatives. The Committee have to thank Mr. John Waymouth, Mr. Theo. Cooper, and Mr. John Lawson for valuable assistance and information in preparing this report.
