Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - in reply- I do not want to delay the passage of the Service and Execution of Process Bill. I thank the Opposition for its attitude. When we are bringing in measures such as this to deal with metrication I will welcome any suggestions from any quarter of the Senate, the House of Representatives or outside for other proposals, especially in the non-party political area, which might improve some of the law. Often it is very difficult to get noncontentious measures attended to. Little amendments which might be very important and which are not in any sense party political or highly controversial often have to wait for years. So I issue that invitation, especially to honourable senators opposite. At any time if they have any matters which they would like considered in these simple kinds of non-controversial measures relating to the principal Act, will they so indicate? We may be able to do some of these things in a quiet atmosphere away from conflict without in any way delaying the legislative process.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time.

In Committee
