Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [3.46]. -in reply - If the honorable senator's statement of the law is correct, it does not matter what the view of the department in regard to any particular case may be; the Government must either administer the law as it is, or ask Parliament to alter it. I. have no knowledge of the instance referred to by the honorable senator, but his remarks seem to indicate that the law is being carried out.I shall, however, see that his remarks are brought under the notice of my colleague, the Treasurer, in order that he may give his personal attention to them.

Senator Collings - I thank the right honorable gentleman.
