Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - The power of entry given under this clause is an unlimited power. What is desired is that the officers should have power to enter for the purpose of discharging the duty imposed on them under the Act. It is not desired to give officers power to enter unnecessarily. I propose to preface the clause with words taken from the New South Wales Act, of which this clause purports to be a copy, as honorable senators will see from the marginal note. I move -

That the words " For the purpose of making any inquiries or observations necessary for the proper carrying out of this Act," be inserted at the commencement of the clause.

Amendment agreed to.
