Senator ALLAN MACDONALD (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) . - I return to the point I raised on the second reading as to the connexion between the payment of this 'bounty and the recent decision of the Privy Council in the /ames case. I still think an effort is being made here to enlist the support of a prescribed authority, which the Minister admitted, in his reply, would no doubt be the Dried Fruits Board.

Senator Brennan - Does the honorable senator realize that the committee has dealt with clause 5, and is now discussing clause 6?

Senator ALLAN MACDONALD (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - We are considering the condition of payment of an export bounty, and applications for payment can bo made only under restrictive regulations. If the decision in the James case means anything at all, it means that those restrictions should not apply. I hope the Minister will give an assurance that we are not incorporating an invalid condition.
