Senator FINDLEY - The answer to the question is as follows : -

The Government is not a party to, and cannot recognise contracts entered into with respect to, lists which contravene the provisions, of the Act referred to.

Senator CHATAWAY - Is it the opinion of the Department that the Act is not to be retrospective, but is only to apply to matters occurring in the future?

Senator FINDLEY - I should say that the Act is operative from the day it received the Royal assent, but I am not going to commit myself to that opinion. If the honorable senator will ask a question later in the usual way I shall endeavour to get an answer which will be satisfactory to him and those interested.
