Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - I understood the Minister to say just now that, under the existing Act, the Government had no power to treat measles as quarantinable, but that they take that power under the terms of this Bill. Surely that statement was not correct, if what Senator Guthrie says is right. It appears that, under the law as it stands, there was power for the quarantine authorities to deal with measles. If that be so, the Minister's statement was hardly correct.

Suggest corrections
