Senator ALLAN MACDONALD (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) . - I understood Senator Brown to say that the members of the Opposition, do not wish to protect the suborner or the sed] tiona s,t. I am loath to believe that the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Collings) and those with whom he is associated will oppose this amendment, which is aimed at corporations with which the members of his party do not wish to be associated. Members of the Opposition have already agreed to a similar amendment, which provides that the penalty to be imposed on the individual shall be imprisonment without the option of a fine. As a corporation cannot be incarcerated, I am suggesting that the penalty shall be a monetary one. The amendment provides a deterrent, and I trust that the committee will accept it.
