Mr CLAREY (Bendigo) .- I should like to ask the Minister's explanation of sub-clause (2.) of clause 4. I think I know the meaning of it, but I should like to have his interpretation of this somewhat complicated provision. It reads - (2.) The repeal of sub-section (2.) of section eleven of the Principal Act has effect in relation to persons born before the date of commencement of this Act as well as in relation to persons born on or after that date, but does not operate so as to make a person to whom that sub-section applied an Australian citizen by virtue of any registration, or purported registration, of his birth at an Australian consulate before that date.
