Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - Careful consideration has been given to the clause. I think that Senator Georges and Senator Hall should feel some comfortable satisfaction that I would not agree readily to anything that would weaken the Bill. What I have said, I have said with deliberation. I think that the omission of the words 'directly or indirectly' will not weaken the clause.

The insertion of the word 'knowingly ' would certainly be aimed at undermining the workability of the clause and that is why it is opposed. I am quite content that the clause should remain as it is with the omission of the words 'directly or indirectly'.
