Mr FORDE (Capricornia) .- Whilst I appreciate the undertaking of the Attorney-General (Mr. Menzies) to investigate this matter to see whether some principle of general application can be provided to deal with this matter, I do not feel disposed to withdraw my amendment. Even the Attorney-General said he could not be dogmatic as to whether the proposed amendment was constitutional. The amendment I am moving was endorsed in similar form by Sir John Latham, and he is no mean authority on the Constitution.

Question put -

That the proposed new clause (Mr. Forde's amendment), be inserted.
