Mr STORRER (Bass) - I object to this proposal. It is a reflection on the justices of the peace of Australia. They are as competent to do this work as any of the other classes of persons mentioned, and have been intrusted with it by the principal Act.

Mr Groom - They have not been intrusted with it bv the principal Act, and are the only persons mentioned in the clause who are non-official.

Mr Spence - They are the persons who are hawked round.

Mr STORRER - That may happen in the honorable member's electorate; but I have known of no case of the kind. The justices of the peace of Australia will compare with any other class.
