Dr EVATT (Hunter) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I should like the Attorney-General to correct me if I am wrong, but to my mind the position is simply this: In the first draft of the bill, 1st January, 1960, was given as the commencement date, but then it was found that the rules would not be ready by that time, or that some necessary preparatory work could not be completed by then. The proposal now is that the legislation will come into effect on a day to be fixed by proclamation, which is the normal way to do it.
