Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) (Honorary Minister) . - I cannot accept the amendment in the form suggested. The Government prefer the provision as it stands in the Bill. We believe that the amendment would weaken it, and would not give the officers intrusted with the administration of the law the time considered necessary in order to trace offenders guilty of serious infringements of the Act.

Senator Sir Josiah Symon - Could the honorable senator suggest any modification of the amendment ?

Senator FINDLEY - No, I prefer the clause as it stands.
