Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - The Minister's reply does not meet my objection at all. If the object be to cover all certificates, and not merely those issued by the Commonwealth, the same course should have been followed in dealing with paragraphs a, b, and c of section 27. They should certainly all be dealt with in the same way.

Senator Russell - The honorable senator speaks as though the object were to exempt some one who has made a fraudulent use of a certificate.

Senator GUTHRIE - I may be told that the matter is dealt with in another section, but I still contend that all these matters should be dealt with in the same section.

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 4 to 6 agreed to.
