Matter remitted to Federal High court London Friday. 1 Fin he privy Council to Day upheld the Appeal of James against the Commonwealth. The demurrer was overruled and the matter remitted for trial by the High court. The respondents Are to pay the Appellant s costs and Bear their own costs of the hearing below and of this a peal. The intervenes will Bear their own costs. The australian dried fruits act was held to be invalid and the matter was remitted to the High court their lordships in a Long judgment say it is True a Constitution must not to construed in any narrow Pedantic senso. It is not that Tho moaning of words changes but that changing circumstances illustrate and illuminate the full import of that meaning. It has been said that in interpreting a constituent or organic statue such As Tho British North american act that construction most beneficial to Tho widest possible amplitude of its Powers must to dropped but that Principio must not to helpful whore a Section is is Section 92 May seem to to a constitutional guarantee of rights. The True test. Tho tuvo test must As always be the actual language used but new and unanticipated conditions of fact arise. It May to that the 1900 framers of Tho. Constitution were thinking in the or-1 diary sons and desired to exclude difficulties of that nature in ardor to Inako Australia one single country. Thus presumably they did not anticipate Tho commercial and Industrial difficulties which of recent Yoars have i led to marketing schemes and Price control. Problems of Tho Constitution How Ever Aro Only solvable is they emerge by giving effect to the language used. After observing that they could not 1 shelter under Tho decision in Host Arthur Case As the High court Felt they should their lordships say m Arthur s Case introduced a now con caption in. Truth. Sovereign rights. Tho decision in that Case deprived Queensland of its Sovereign right to regulate into nil prices. Thus the theory that Section 02 did not bind Tho Commonwealth came into existence Twenty years after Tho Commonwealth act and is corollary to Tho new construction of Section 92. Their lordships make a Survey of other costs in order to show that Tho foundations of respondent s arguments that Section 92 does not bind Tho Commonwealth were not merely novel when first enunciated but have not been applied by the High court in practice in a subsequent decision though re nil Irinod from Timo to Timo in dissenting from judgments. Examining the language of Tho Constitution in order to ascertain its Truo construction their lordships say the first question a what is meant by absolutely from in Section 92. Free in itself vague and indeterminate must take color from the con text. Meaning of compare for instance its Uso in free speech Freo Lovo free dinner free Trade. Free speech does not mean free Sproch but Means speech hedged in by Laws. Freo love on , Means the License of Libert Inage though there Aro limitations based on Public decency. Free dinner is subject to behaviour not being objectionable. Freo Trado Means in Ordinary Par Lance Freedom from Tariff. Free in Section 92 cannot to limited to Freedom in the last mentioned sense it is car that much More is included in Tho term. Thero May to different and perhaps Moro drastic ways of interfering with Freedom is by restriction or partial or completo prohibition of passing into or of Tho state. After a Long dissertation non definitions of Freedom their lordships say that As a matter of actual language Freedom in Section 92 must somehow to limited and the Only limitation that emerges from the context and which is logically and realistically applicable is Freedom at what is the crucial Point in into state Trade namely at the state Barrier. I Section 92. Their lordships opine that Section 92 binds Tho Commonwealth and it Soems to follow Nece Varrily that Tho dried fruits act 1925-35 must be held invalid. On interpretation of free in Section 92, acts and regulations either prohibit entirely if there is no License or if License is granted partially pro Hibit inter state Trade. Indeed the contrary was but faintly contended. If Tho Commonwealth Wero held to to bound by the Section. In their lordships judgment Section 92 applies to the Commonwealth. That being so the dried fruits act and regulations should be declared invalid As contravening Section 92. Tie result is that Tho Commonwealth should to held Havo failed in its at tempt by the method adopted under Tho dried fruits act to control prices and establish a marketing system even though Tho government was satisfied that such a policy was. In the Best interests of Tho australian people. Such a result cannot fail to cause regrets but these inconveniences Aro Likely to flow from a written Constitution. Will of people. Their lordships cannot arrive at any conclusion Savo that they could not give effect to Tho respondent s Conten Tion consistently with any construction of Tho Constitution which is in Accord with sound principles of interpretation. To give that of would amount to re writing and not construing Tho Constitution. That is not their lordships function. Tho Constitution including Section 92, was embodied in the will of Tho people and can be altered Only by the will of the people expressed according to Section 128. Though their lordships Are reversing Tho decision of Tho High court they do so with the greatest respect for the opinions of Tho distinguished Judger no have thought differently and do so with Peculiar diffidence and reluctance in a constructional matter. Open question. They have however the Consolation that they Aro giving effect to the declared opinion of three of Tho five judges of Tho High court who sat on Tho Case while Tho other two seemed to indicate their individual opinions tended the same Way but All five judges thought they should follow what had been regarded is Law in the High court for Ninny years and leave its reconsideration to the judicial committee where is stated in tames v. Cowan it was an open question and must hero be dealt with on that footing. Their lordships express particular appreciation of Tho admirable argument by the Federal attorney general or. R. G. Menzies Tho Merit of which is ii no Way diminished because he did not succeed. Tho Appeal should be allowed the do Murrer Over ruled and the matter remitted for trial by Tho High court. Respondents will pay Tho Appellant s Costa and Bear their own costs of the hearing below and of this Appeal. The intervenor will boar their own costs. Their lordships will humbly so advise his majesty. Continued on Page 2. Supposed attempt on King s life.
