Senator DEIN (New South Wales) . - I see nothing objectionable in the provision as it stands. It states that any person who refuses to answer truly and fully questions put to him, or refuses or fails to do any of the other things required under this proposed new sub-section, shall be guilty of an offence. The inclusion of the words " without just cause " merely gives the person questioned an opportunity to furnish a satisfactory explanation in writing. If he does this may we not assume that he will clear himself of any' charge that may have been laid against him?
