Senator McGREGOR (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I am sorry that Senator St. Ledger was not present when clause 7 was before the Committee. If he objects to the insertion of the word "functions" in this clause he should have opposed its retention in that provision which has reference to ' powers and functions of Deputy Commissioners." We now desire to bring this clause into harmony with the previous one. As a member of the legal profession, Senator St. Ledger knows that in vesting the Commissioner with authority we require to be very particular lest he may be found exercising functions instead of powers. I am very sorry that time should be wasted over such a trivial matter.
