Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (Parramatta) (Attorney-General) . - I move -

In proposed section 24ab, sub-section (1.), omit " prejudicial, or intended to be prejudicial,", insert " intended to be prejudicial ".

We seek to remove from the total expression " for a purpose prejudicial or intended to be prejudicial" the word "prejudicial" where first appearing. The existing formula in the act now in force is, "for a purpose prejudicial ". The original amendments sought to add the words, " or intended to be prejudicial ". I accepted a suggestion from the Opposition that the word " prejudicial " where first appearing might well be deleted. I do not think any significant change has taken place in the total form of the expression.

Suggest corrections
