Senator MURPHY (New South Wales) . - Has the section to which I referred earlier been considered? I referred to section 33 (l.)(f) of the Judiciary Act, which provides that the High Court may make orders or direct the issue of writs of habeas corpus. Is it the view of the Attorney-General's Department that the original jurisdiction of the High Court to grant writs of habeas corpus does not extend to Australian citizens arrested under Australian law outside of Australia?
