Senator MESSNER(10.17) —I draw the attention of the Committee to clause 297 on page 125 of the Bill. Again I make the point that the Opposition feels so strongly about this matter concerning the reversal of onus of proof that we foreshadow that should this amendment, which I will move in a moment, be lost we intend to move a further motion at a later stage of the debate requesting that the matter of the reversal of onus of proof be referred to the Senate Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs. I merely wish to indicate that in light of the argument that has gone before. I move:

Pages 125-143, clause 297, as amended, line 5 (page 125) to line 33 (page 143), leave out the clause.

Amendment negatived.
