Senator DRAKE (Queensland) .- Having listened to Senator Best's speech, and to the eloquent interjections of the Minister, I can suggest an amendment that will put honorable senators to the test. Those who have told us again and again that in this clause the defendant can give evidence to show that the competition was unfair will surely have no objection to put that in the Bill. I propose, therefore, if Senator Pulsford will temporarily withdraw his amendment, to move that the words " unless the contrary is proved " be inserted. They are words which are used in sub-clause 2.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.

Amendment (by Senator Drake) proposed -

That after the word C! unfair," line 2, the words "unless the contrary is proved" be inserted.
