Senator DALY (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) .- The words "or by the North Australia Commission " have been inserted by the draftsman because the North Australia Commission is the only authority not covered by the word " Commonwealth ". As honorable sena tors know, the word " Commonwealth " has a specific meaning. Laws of the Commonwealth have to he followed by an ordinance before they can apply to North Australia. I am advised by theCrown law authorities that these words have been inserted in order to include the one authority which might not be covered by the word "Commonwealth".
