Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVice President of the Executive Council) . - Every one has a clear idea in his own mind as to what an absentee is. If a person leaves Australia to take up his residence abroad, and starts business in another country, he is evidently an absentee, although he may not be away from this country for three months. It would be useless for such a man to attempt to prove to the Commissioner that he was not an absentee. But if he is a bond fide Australian, he may be away for two years, and may still satisfy the Commissioner that his busi ness required him to be away for that period, in which case he would not be an absentee.
