Senator GARDINER (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I can assure the honorable senator with perfect safety that the powers he suggests are within the' Bill. The wording of the clause is so* wide that it brings within the scope of the powers that we are taking any firms or companies controlled or influenced by enemy subjects, even though they are registered in Australia under an Australian name. We are taking power to secure from such firms any money due or accruing, and to see that no further loss is inflicted upon our own people.
