Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - Following the adjournment of the debate last week Senator Murphy was to consider a reformulation of this clause and the next clause. He indicated to me this morning that his view was that clauses 5 and 6 should be omitted. In deference to that opinion I move:

That clause5 be omitted.

I do so with some reluctance because this Parliament has never entered upon a real formulation of the area and extent of its privileges. It has been indicated that some honourable senators hold the view that a later occasion should be utilised for this purpose. The chief purpose of this Bill, of course, is to provide by ordinary parliamentary means a definition of the parliamentary grounds, of the parliamentary zone and in particular and primarily of the site of Parliament House.
