Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I move:

In sub-clause (4) leave out 'which has the effect, cither directly or indirectly, of requiring the parties to a marriage to live separately and apart'.

The purpose of this amendment is to extend the area in which the parties can be directed or advised- whatever might come afterwards- to attend upon a marriage counsellor. There have been some alterations to clause 90. This amendment seeks to remove the words which have some limiting effect upon the cases in which the court may direct or advise the parties to attend upon a marriage counsellor.

Senator James McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Mr Chairman,I think the Attorney has skipped one amendment. I think amendment No. 17 precedes the one to which he has just adverted.

Senator Murphy - No.
