Senator MURPHY - I ask the AttorneyGeneral whether he can give the Senate information as to when the new trade practices legislation is to be introduced and whether it is proposed that the recommendations to be included in that legislation be presented to both Houses of the Parliament before the introduction of the Bill?

Senator GREENWOOD (VICTORIA) (Attorney-General) - I am unable to say when legislation will be introduced because, that is dependent, firstly, upon the reaction to a statement which will be made outlining the Government's proposals and, secondly, when tha work of drafting the legislation can be completed. But it is certainly proposed that as soon as possible - I anticipate it will be within a matter of weeks - a full statement outlining what the Government is proposing will be made not only in this place but also in the House of Representatives.
