Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) (2:22 AM) . - This clause is similar to the regulation clause to which we objected in the preceding bill. As a matter of fact, it goes further than the clause in the other bill, because it involves, not only Ministers of the Crown, but also " officers and persons employed by the State." If the Governor-General is permitted to make regulations involving the welfare of State officers who owe allegiance to the State Government, a grave position may arise. I ask the committee to vote against the clause, because I do not think it is fair to give such extensive powers to the Executive.
