Senator VARDON (South Australia) . - I should like to know whether under ordinary law the onus of proof is not on the -defendant?

Senator St Ledger - Yes, until it is taken away.

Senator VARDON - Usually it is not the defendant, but the prosecutor who has to prove his case. I admit that sometimes we provide that the onus of proof shall be on the defendant. I do not think that the amendment is necessary.
