Senator SENIOR (South Australia) .- I think, Mr. Chairman-

Senator Pearce - What ! two speeches about a goat at this time of night?

Senator SENIOR - I can afford to ignore an interjection of that kind. The point I wish to emphasize is that this clause applies to the case of animals straying, not only on railway property, but on the Capital Site, which is 100 square miles in extent. It applies to the total stretch of the east-west railway and to the line from Port Augusta to Oodnadatta. If it is thought desirable to have a heavy penalty in the case of trespassing on a railway line, let us say so, but do not let us agree to a sweeping clause of this character.

Amendment negatived.

Clause agreed to.

Title agreed to.

Motion (by Senator Gardiner) proposed -

That the Bill be reported to the Senate with amendments.

Suggest corrections
