The following amendment was agreed to:
Section 14, sub-section (1). The words " or any verbal information or answer given relating to any individual person, business or concern " added at the end of the sub-section.
Then there was the following amendment by Senator Brown:
Section 14, sub-section (1). To add after the sub-section a new sub-section as follows:—
" (2) Every officer of statistics shall be required to take an oath in the prescribed form that he shall not publish or declare to any person other than a Minister or another officer of statistics concerned with the matter in the course of his duties as such officer the contents or any part of the contents of any individual schedule, form or other document filled in or otherwise completed by any person in pursuance of a requisition made under this Act or any information furnished or answer to any question asked under this Act."
That, I take it, is an amendment that Senator Brown does not wish to move. That is the amendment with regard to the oath.
