Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - It may help the consideration of the whole of this Bill in Committee if I were to say at this stage that my officers are available to any honourable senator who is concerned about any part of the Bill and who may wish to seek assistance in that regard. Honourable senators may obtain that assistance on a completely confidential basis from my officers. They can ask them what the construction is, what the alternatives are or anything they like. If any honourable senator opposite wants either assistance or independent counsel to advise him on these matters I will facilitate that. But let consideration of this Bill not be held back any further by any suggestion that the resources of the Government are not being made available to honourable senators opposite.
