Senator GEORGES (Queensland) - I should like to speak for a few moments because of my concern that nothing should be done in a precipitate fashion.

Senator Wright - I beg your pardon.

Senator GEORGES - I said in a precipitate fashion. Perhaps I should say nothing should be done hastily.

Senator Wright - Thank you.

Senator GEORGES -Since the future of this vital section of the legislation depends on Senator Townley 's understanding of it, and since he has taken the opportunity to consult with both sides, I think we should allow him the opportunity to seek advice and I am giving him that opportunity. It would be unfair, I think, to Senator Townley to vote on this amendment without fully convincing himself of the consequences. It seems now that he has reached the point of understanding and for that reason I will end my remarks.

Question put:

That the words proposed to be left out (Senator Murphy's amendment) be left out.

Suggest corrections
