Mr PERKINS - I made no such statement. I said that legislation was before Parliament to give the Government power to take action to preserve the good name and honour of New South Wales. I also said that I believed that the people of Australia, and particularly the people of the district in which I delivered the speech, were behind the Government in that move. I added that if the legislation then under consideration proved ineffective, no doubt an appeal would be made to the people to alter the Constitution, in such a way as to clothe the Commonwealth Parliament with power to do what it desired to do in that regard. I leave honorable members of the House to put upon my remarks the interpretation which must have been given by those to whom they were originally addressed.
