Mr NELSON (Northern Territory) (11:47 AM) . - Does the Bill cover the Northern Territory?

Mr Groom - It applies to the Northern Territory, and can be used if required.

Mr NELSON - Would any indictable offence mean the deportation of the convicted person?

Mr Latham - Clause 8 provides that he can be returned.

Mr NELSON - I have not had time to read the provisions of the Bill. The honorable member for Wentworth raised the question of the mixing of white and black prisoners. I know what that means. The Bill should not apply to the Northern Territory, because it would be unfair to send a man away from his home town.

Mr Latham - He can be returned.

Mr NELSON - If the Bill provides for his return, I withdraw my objection.

Mr Groom - The Bill provides for that.
