Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) -I shall take only half a minute. While considering that which has fallen from the lips of the AttorneyGeneral and to which I am attracted, I ask him to look at sub-clause ( l)(b). The Regulations and Ordinances Committee has considered the situation where, in respect of a defence, it is necessary to prove that ali reasonable precautions were taken and all due diligence was exercised. I invite the Attorney-General to strike out the word 'all' in each case. I submit that it is a reasonable defence if a person shows that he took reasonable precautions and exercised due diligence to avoid the contravention.
