Senator BRENNAN (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - in reply - The amendment to section 4 has no relation to the dried fruits case, but tho amendment to section 6 has. Whereas the Dried Fruits Boards were originally the authority, these boards haying possibly, as a result of tho Privy Council decision, become invalid, thcwords " a prescribed authority " have been substituted for the words " the prescribed authority within the meaning of the Dried Fruits Act 1928-29-1935." It may well be that the prescribed authority under the amended act will be the Dried Fruits Boards at present in existence.
