Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - I move -

That the words " or receive, by way of pledge or otherwise" be left out.

Even if it be not advisable to allow a man to sell these valuable trinkets, there can be no objection to his pawning them in case of emergency, when the accommodation which he would receive would be infinitely more valuable to him than would the decoration. If the Minister will accept the amendment I shall resume my seat, but if not I shall continue talking until 4 o'clock in the hope that we shall never hear of this measure again.
