Senator KEATING - Then I suppose that has been the experience of other prosecutors also, but in their case there is no provision which enables them to get the. benefit of the conviction if the Court does .not issue the necessary warrant. If Courts have been in the habit of ordering a person's detention, and not issuing the necessary warrant to authorize it, it is very regrettable. If the Department is to say that although the Court, has failed to. issue the warrant the person convicted and ordered to be detained shall still be liable to detention, that is a very wrong principle, and the remedy is worse than the evil.

Senator PEARCE - I can see that the majority of the legal members are against me, and will meet the view of 'the Committee by letting the proviso go.
