Senator GORTON (Victoria) (Minister for Works) .- I find myself in a strange legal position on this matter, as with my legal knowledge I am not fully qualified to cope with it. This question arose quite suddenly and without warning. 1 should like to make it clear that I did not say I thought there was any doubt on the matter to which the Leader of the Opposition has referred. I merely indicated that anything that 1, or indeed any of us, said on this matter one way or the other has no real significance or ultimate legal validity. I do not know whether there would be any other implications as a result of the sort of amendment suggested by the Leader of the Opposition or whether it would affect other measures. I would have to discuss such matters with the Attorney-General or his advisers before I could come to a firm conclusion that any such changes should be made in the Bill.

Bill agreed to.

Bill reported without amendment; report adopted.
