Mr SNEDDEN (Bruce) [9.3]. - The Government does not accept this amendment. I have had over the weekend the opportunity to give very close and meticulous consideration to this matter. The Government cannot accept the amendment because it has written into it a preliminary test which has to be answered before the Tribunal can come to the principal test. But the preliminary test on this occasion will determine the final outcome and will negate the opportunity for the Tribunal to engage upon the primary test it is required to engage upon. If there is a proved undue advantage being taken it is very difficult for anybody to argue to the contrary, because if there is a proved undue advantage there is nothing left to be considered in relation to the public interest. It is for this reason the Government cannot accept this amendment.

Amendment negatived.
