Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) . - Clause 16 declares that "imported goods" and "Australian goods" include goods of those classes respectively, and all parts and ingredients thereof. Therefore, "imported goods" is a term meaning classes of goods, and the Justice reading this provision in regard to goods which are the subject of an action may interpret it to mean classes of goods. He may, under sub-clause 4 of clause 21, if he thinks fit. " allow any person interested in importing imported goods to be represented at the investigation." Why should other importers interested in importing a class of goods be represented at an investigation, if it is not contemplated that the importation of the whole class may be prohibited?

Senator Millen - Another importer may intend to import goods of the same class.

Senator PEARCE - Yes, and will therefore be interested in the investigation, and allowed to be represented. In view of the provisions to which I have referred, it seems to me necessary to require that the prohibition 'shall' specify the goods imported.
