Senator GORTON (Victoria) (Minister for Works) . - in reply - The points raised by Senator Murphy would perhaps be better discussed in the committee stages of the Bill since they concern the provisions of the Bill rather than its general principles. Therefore, at this stage I will not say anything further.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
