Mr FADDEN (Darling Downs) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I appreciate the spirit in which the Attorney-General (Dr. Evatt) has met the constructive criticism and suggestions of the Opposition. This is a most refreshing experience. The right honorable gentleman recognized that the amendments were submitted for the sole purpose of improving the bill. This legislation will have a distinctly beneficial effect on business morality. Whilst we hope that it will not be necessary to utilize the powers contained in the bill, we are pleased that authority has been given to enable action to be taken against dishonest traders.
