Senator PULSFORD (New South Wales) . - I move -

That the word "probably," in paragraph a of sub-clause 1, be left out.

Senator Playford - Surelyhe honorable senator would not wait until an industry had been absolutely destroyed?

Senator PULSFORD -My desire is that people shall not be scared to death by ghosts.

Senator Drake - There is no need for the word " probably " if, under ordinary circumstances of trade, the importation would lead to the destruction of an industry.

Senator PULSFORD - The word is quite unnecessary for any honest dealing, and it will only facilitate improper interference, where there should be no interference whatever. It would be a very extraordinary case in which a man could not imagine that something would " probably " happen.

Senator Playford - The word is used in previous clauses.

Senator PULSFORD - There is nothing to prevent our recommitting the Bill and amending those clauses.
