Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - If the Vice-President of the Executive Council is satisfied that by inserting the word ' ' functions ' ' in the previous clause we did not authorize the Commissioner to delegate his power of delegation, of course everything is all right. But I fear that we are going further than even the Government themselves intend to go.
