Senator McLACHLAN (South Australia) . - Clause 81 is taken from State legislation with regard to the protection of policies from creditors. Part of that State legislation provides that a married woman may effect a policy upon her own life or upon the life of her husband for her separate use. The question of a medical examination or no medical examination does not arise at this stage. It is simply a question of having legal protection thrown round the policy. But if the words " with his consent " are retained the power of the married woman to effect an insurance on the life of her husband is limited. The proviso I have suggested should meet the ease.
