Mr WHITLAM (Werriwa) (Leader of the Opposition) - by leave - On behalf of the Opposition I welcome the statement which the Attorney-General (Mr Hughes) has made following the first Bill which he introduced. This will be a notable advance in the working of the Parliament. The officers appointed under the Parliamentary Counsel Bil] will now, in a real sense, be not only Government draftsmen but parliamentary draftsmen. On my side we are most gratified that the Attorney-General has so fully and promptly responded to the suggestion made in the second reading stage of the Bill.
