Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - We oppose the amendment moved by the Opposition. There is no justification for the deletion of the conspiracy provision which is contained in sub-clause (f)The word 'conspires' in this sub-clause plainly has its ordinary meaning and refers to an agreement to perform an illegal act, and generally this is indefensible. It stands on a different footing from the provisions which was referred to earlier and which the honourable senator said we altered in order to change the words to 'arrangements ' or ' understandings ' and so on.

Amendment negatived.
