SYDNEY, September 15. The Committee set up by the -Federal Convention having finished the clauses dealing with money bills, set to work to review the schemes suggested for dealing with deadlocks. The proposal, which emanated from the New South Wales Assembly, providing for the referendum, was first dealt with.. Under the scheme any. proposed law adopted by a majority of the Commonwealth shall be sent on to the Governor-General for his assent, as if it had been passed by both Houses. In the event of the Commonwealth not deciding in favor of the proposed law it cannot be again brought forward for three years. The Committee decided to permit a general debate on the whole subject, rather than confine it to the New South Wales scheme rigidly.
