Mr ISAACS (Indi) (Attorney-General) . - I move -

That the following new sub-clause be added : -

2.   On the conviction of any person for an offence under this Part of this Act the Judge before whom the trial takes place shall, upon application by or on behalf of the Attorney-General or any person thereto authorized by him, grant an injunction restraining the convicted person and his servants and agents from the repetition or continuance of the offence of which he has been convicted."

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - This subclause says "on conviction."

Mr ISAACS - I wish to show my honorable friend the difference between the two cases. If there has been no conviction, one will have to start proceedings, and have the whole thing heard and determined. But if there has been a conviction, an injunction may be applied for at once, without going through the formality of new proceedings.

Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I do not object to that where there has been a conviction.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 11 -

1.   Any person who is injured in his person or property by any other person, by reason of any act or thing done by that other person in contravention of this Part of this Act, may, in any competent Court exercising Federal jurisdiction, sue for and recover treble damages for the injury. . . .
