Senator DALY (South Australia) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - When an amending bill was before Parliament in 1928, it was intended to do what is now proposed; but after that legislation had been passed by Parliament it was discovered that the legislative authority to that end was not complete.

The department followed the practice of allowing deduction according to what it believed to be the spirit of the legislation, ft was felt that the introduction of this bill offered a favorable opportunity to give legislative sanction to the action of the department in its interpretation of the will of Parliament. The intention is to do now what was intended in 1928, and also to validate the action taken by the department since then.
