Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - It will save time if I intervene to say that although the Government does not think that the Opposition's amendment will affect the provisions of the Bill as it now stands the Government does not think that it will do any harm to accept it although it is really not necessary. We would probably agree with everything that Senator Greenwood would say. So in order to save time, we might as well accept the proposal now. It is only a question of putting in something that is unnecessary. It will mean a little more printing and so on, but we see no problem about itsinclusion. That is already the intent of the Bill. We are sure that it will be construed in that way. We are agreeable to the amendment. We think it is unnecessary to discuss it.
