Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) , - Looking at clause 4, it seems to me that the whole matter will be governed by regulations. Ordinarily speaking, I have an objection to what may be termed legislation by regulation. Although all regulations must conform with the principles of the measures to which they relate, we know that in some cases they run almost into volumes. But if copies of the regulations in force were made available whenever an amending measure was under discussion honorable members could refresh their memories in regard to them. This would be serviceable to the committee in the consideration of the present bill.
