Mr ISAACS (Indi) (Attorney-General) - - Absolute power is given to the Justice to make an order that he thinks will meet the case. If only one person is concerned in the offence, he will make an order accordingly. Power is given to the Justice to look into the circumstances, and to make his order fit them.

Mr Higgins - Does the AttorneyGeneral think that the Justice will have power to differentiate between different importers of the same class of goods ?

Mr ISAACS - Yes, I think so. I do not know of any other words that would meet the case. We can only give the Justice unrestricted power, and trust him to make no more stringent order than is necessary. 1
