Senator BRENNAN (Victoria Assistant Minister) . - The inclusion of words " or similar institution " covers the point raised by Senator Arkins. It makes unnecessary the specific naming of various hospitals or homes, for it includes all institutions similar to those already mentioned. The proposed new section mentions specifically " an asylum for the insane, a hospital, sanatorium, benevolent home " and then adds " or similar institution". That is a drag-net provision, and the inclusion of the word "sanitarium" is unnecessary.
