Mr BAKER (Oxley) (2:49 AM) .Being entirely opposed to this bill, I am naturally against a clause which prescribes penalties for breaches of its provisions. If the Government considers that a summary prosecution, involving a fine not exceeding £100 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding six months, or both, is so serious that it should not be undertaken without the consent of the Treasurer, surely a prosecution upon indictment, involving a fine not exceeding £500 or imprisonment for a term not exceeding two ' years, or both, should not proceed without permission. That is why I asked that the qualification "summarily" should be omitted from the proposed subclause 4.
