Senator VARDON (South Australia) . - I have looked into this matter, and am satisfied that my amendment is not necessary. I was influenced by a case which occurred in New South Wales, and which was referred to in the course of our debates. My idea was to broaden the Bill, and make it as comprehensive as possible, but I am now convinced that no practical benefit would be secured by the amendment. In fact, strictly speaking, the amendment would cramp the Bill rather than enlarge its scope.

Motion agreed to.
