Senator FRASER (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) (Minister for External Territories) . - I remind the Leader of the Opposition (Senator McLeay) that this bill was drafted by the previous Government, of which he was a member. It has not been altered in any respect, and I presume that Senator McLeay supported this clause when the measure was considered by Cabinet. The bill was not presented to Parliament by the previous Government because it went out of office.

Senator Allan MacDonald - How long is it since the bill was drafted?
