Senator MURPHY (New South Wales) (Attorney-General and Minister for Customs and Excise) - We oppose the amendment. I gave the reasons during the cognate debate a little earlier.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Lawrie)- The question is that words proposed to be added be added. All those in favour say 'aye'. Those against say 'no'. I think the ayes have it. Senator Murphy, is a division required?

Senator MURPHY -Senator McManus, what is your Party going to do?

Senator McManus - We will support the Opposition's amendment.

Senator MURPHY - We are running short of time. To save the time of the Senate, it will be indicated on the record that the Government opposed the amendment. This will save the necessity for a division.
