I will immediately expedite my approach to the Amendment. I gather that your Ruling does not rule out any arguments which I may found upon the third Amendment on the Paper, at the end of the Clause to add the words: Provided that this Section shall not come into operation in any Dominion until a convention has been ratified by the Parliament of the United Kingdom and every Dominion Parliament establishing uniformity with regard to laws having extraterritorial operation throughout the Empire.
