Mr WATSON - The idea under which the two clauses were drafted in different terms was that clause 55 was intended to deal with persons who committed an aggravated series of offences, or an aggregation of offences. Clause 56 deals with .the case of a person who may commit an offence for the first time, but still by wilful default, as distinguished from a person making 'default without real intention.

Mr BRUCE SMITH (PARKES, NEW SOUTH WALES) - It would have been better if the clauses had been in reverse order.

Mr WATSON - Perhaps it would have been better if the first of these clauses had dealt with a first wilful default, and if the aggregation of offences had been dealt with later on.

Clause, as amended, agreed to. 1
