Mr SINCLAIR (New England) (Minister for Primary Industry) - This amendment would introduce a quite radical change to all systems of inspection, from the Crimes Act on. In many Acts there is no requirement that any person shall issue a warrant for inspection. But it is felt that in a Bill of this character and, indeed, in many other primary industry support Bills, it is necessary that a warrant to enter should be issued. For that reason the words 'Justice of the Peace' have been inserted. I am afraid that the Government cannot accept the amendment moved by the honourable member for Mitchell (Mr Irwin), if for no other reason than that it would be the first legislation of this character where there was a requirement that a person other than a Justice of the Peace should issue such a warrant.

Amendment negatived.

Bill agreed to.
