Mr WENTWORTH (Mackellar) - I am a little puzzled about this, perhaps because I am not as familiar with all the details as I should be. Clause 7 of the Bill states:

Section 8 of the Principal Act is repealed.

Clause 3 states:

Section 8 of the Extradition (Foreign States) Act 1968 is repealed.

As the principal Act is the Extradition (Foreign States) Act 1966-1972, perhaps the Minister would explain to me the reference to the Extradition (Foreign States) Act 1968. Is this just the saving of warrants? What is the real purpose of the clause? It may well have quite a good purpose in law, but I do not have all the documents in front of me. I would like the Minister to explain to me why the reference to section 8 appears twice.
