Senator DE LARGIE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -Arising out of that answer, I ask the Minister what legal restrictions the Government can impose upon the export of gold by a Chinaman, or by any other person, who wishes to send gold from Australia?

Senator PEARCE - The Government can, if they think fit, prohibit the export of gold, except as approved by the Minister.

Senator de Largie - Under what Act?

Senator PEARCE - We can prohibit its export under our general powers just as we prohibited the export of sugar.
