Senator BEST (Victoria) .- The title "Anti-Trust" would be' more or less misleading. It would make it appear that the Bill was intended' to deal simply with trusts. As a matter of fact, Part III. deals with the prevention pf dumping, and that is an essentially valuable feature of the measure. Indeed, some honorable senators have gone so far as to suggest that it is the most valuable portion. We now have an expressive title which truthfully indicates the objects aimed at. We should adhere to it. It would be unwise for us to accept a title that would fail to explain comprehensively the purport of the Bill.
