Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) .- This bill is a synthesis of the bill which the Attorney-General (Sir Garfield Barwick) introduced last May and of the amendments which he circulated last October. Last year the Opposition resolved not to treat the legislation on party lines but to leave its members free to speak and to vote at all stages as they desired. The Opposition has resolved to adopt the same attitude to the present measure.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and committed pro forma; progress reported.
