Senator CROFT (Western Australia) . - I propose to support the Bill for similar reasons to those given by Senator Pearce; but I am not at all favorable to the present title. " Australian Industries Preservation Bill " may be a good enough title for those who desire to go to the country with an electioneering placard, but that is not a sufficient reason for adopting it from my point of view. I , support the Bill because I am opposed to trusts and dumping. If it 0011 Id be called "Anti-Trust and AntiDumping Bill," I think the case would be met.

Senator Sir Josiah Symon - I do not mind that, if the honorable senator thinks it is necessary.

Senator CROFT - I shall support Senator Symon's amendment until I hear a better suggestion.
