I beg to move:—
Section 4. To delete in line 16 the words "inquest or inquiry whatsoever" and substitute therefor the words "or inquest (other than an inquest held by a coroner by virtue of his office)."
As the Bill was originally drafted, I think this particular clause was made wider than the proposals of the Bill intended, and if the Senators read Section 4 they will see that it applies to all jurors, whereas it was originally meant that it should only apply to those jurors whose names are on the jurors' list. It was not meant to apply to coroner's cases where jurors can be summoned from the ordinary citizens. The Bill originally included coroner's inquests.
My amendment proposes to eliminate them.
