Finance (Customs and Excise Duties) Bill, 1933 (Certified Money Bill)—Committee Stage.

I am sorry to find myself in disagreement with Senator Brown in this matter. If the word “knowingly” is inserted it will be impossible to enforce the section, for every man will be entitled to say “W...More Button
