Senator SPICER (Victoria) .- in reply- A provision similar to that contained in regulation 25 appeared in the regulations which the Senate was discussing last night. Presumably, it was originally put into those regulations for a reason similar to that which the Minister has suggested as his justification for these regulations. After that provision had been in operation for a month or so, the Attorney-General (Dr. Evatt) saw fit to delete it from the regulations. I suggest that exactly the same reasons as caused that step to be taken in connexion with regulations dealing with adjustment of contracts should now induce the Minister to take similar action in connexion with these regulations.

Question put -

That, regulation No. 25 of the National Security (Landlord and Tenant) Regulations issued under the National Security Act 1939- 1940, and included in Statutory Rules 1941, No. 275, he disallowed.
