Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - I desire to .know the interpretation which the Minister places upon "foreign company"? Does a "foreign company" mean a company of foreign nationality, or simply a company foreign to Australia?

Senator Gardiner - A company carrying on business outside of Australia.

Senator Keating - A "foreign company " is a company which is incorporated, and which has its head office outside of Australia.

Senator SENIOR - There is no definition of the term in this Bill. I hold that there should be, so that the interpretation of the measure may be rendered easy. I should like the Vice-President of the Executive Council to make a note of my point.
