Senator MURPHY (New South Wales) - Leader of the Opposition) (10.57) - I move:

That sections 10 and 11 of theLegal Practitioners Ordinance 1972, as contained in Australian Capital Territory Ordinance 1972 No. 4, and made under the Seat of Government (Administration) Act 1910-1970, be disallowed.

Notice of motion to disallow the Ordinance was given on 13th April 1972.


Senator Greenwood - That is not the motion of which you gave notice.


Senator MURPHY - No. My notice was directed to the whole of the Ordinance and to each part. I am restricting my motion as I have moved it to several parts of the Ordinance, sections 10 and 11.


Senator Greenwood - I rise to take a point of order. I am not sure where the strict right and the strict position under the Standing Orders lies in regard to this matter. But a notice of motion has been on the notice paper for several weeks. That notice of motion is:

That the Legal Practitioners Ordinance 1972, as contained in Australian Capital Territory Ordinance 1972 No. 4, and made under the Seat of Government (Administration) Act 1910-1970, be disallowed.

It was placed on the notice paper without any explanation at the time as to what was the ground of objection. Outside the Senate I was assured by Senator Murphy that it had been placed as a notice of motion because the time for putting it down was about to expire and he was giving consideration to the position.
