Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) -- We all know that the word "the" in the expression " the Australian industry," in paragraph b, is pointing to a particular industry. I .take it that the object is to make the provision apply to any Australian industry which is threatened, and, therefore, I move -

That the following words be added to paragraph I) of sub-clause 1: - "intended to be destroyed or injured."

I do not -think it necessary to discuss the amendment which I move, because, in my opinion, to refer to "the Australian industry " is the crudest possible way of expressing what we want to do. The words I propose to add to paragraph b are taken from other portions of the Bill, and indicate that the industry referred to therein is one which it is alleged is being injured.
