Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Attorney-General) - The press stories about the convictions in America are now a little stale; I have seen them. The honorable member is quite wrong to say that any undertaking was given, as to legislation, in the Governor-General's Speech on the date he mentioned. The Government said it would look into the matter. It has done so, and has fully honored that obligation. In the GovernorGeneral's more recent Speech the Government said that the matter had progressed to the point where the States ought to be consulted and that this could now be done.

They are being consulted, and very good progress is being made.
