Senator PALTRIDGE -It is a matter for regret - the Attorney-General himself greatly regrets it - that it will not be possible to introduce the legislation in this sessional period as was hoped. I indicate to the honorable senator that this legislation, being for Australia completely new and completely novel-

Senator Murphy - And completely nonexistent.

Senator PALTRIDGE - Yes, and completely non-existent as yet. The honorable senator should possess himself in patience. I assure him that the legislation will be introduced in the next sessional period. As I was saying, the complexity of this legislation is such that the Attorney-General believes that it is better to wait just a little while longer in order to ensure that, when the legislation is introduced, it will be better than would be the case if he believed himself to be under irresistible compulsion to introduce it in this sessional period.
