Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - A previous clause provides that an accused person may be remanded from time to time. Though I do not think it is provided, as it is provided in similar measures in the States, that a remand shall not exceed eight days, if the Crown ask for and secure a remand for a certain period, and, if at the end of that period they ask for a further remand, the Court will consider whether, in all the circumstances, a reasonable time for the prosecution to go on has elapsed. If the Court decides that a reasonable time has elapsed, it will be open for it to discharge the accused.

Clause agreed to.
