Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . - I should like to ask the Government how they interpret paragraph b, which reads - has been absent from Australia and such territories during more than half of the period of twelve months immediately preceding that date.

Why not insert in this provision the words " six months," in lieu of the words " half of the period of twelve months"? Is it intended to add up the absences of a man from Australia till they aggregate more than six months? I cannot understand the provision.
