Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - There is a difference, but I do not think it is worth disagreeing about. Whether the maximum penalty is two years or one year, the difference is not very great. I do not know whether we should try to make all these penalties exact. One man may regard one offence in one light and another offence as infinitely more serious. As there seems to be an inclination on the part of the Committee to lessen penalties I am quite prepared to retain the smaller penalty in this case.
