Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I would point out to the honorable senator that, where offences are provided for in the Electoral Act, proceedings in connexion with such offences will be taken under that Act. But suppose that some persons prevented honorable senators from coming here to attend to their political duties. The Electoral Act contains no provision for any such offence, though it might be a most serious and brutal offence. The Bill deals with quite a number of crimes which otherwise have not been provided for. I hope that honorable senators will agree to the clause.
