Senator MURPHY(New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) by leave- I move:

That the date for presenting the report of the Legislative and General Purpose Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs on the clauses of the Family Law Bill 1 974 be extended until 1 8 October 1 974.

The Chairman of the Committee has discussed the matter with me. He has indicated the progress which the Committee has made. It seems to me reasonable that this extension ought to be granted. The date for presenting the report was fixed for 18 September, which would be tomorrow, but I think that it would be helpful in the consideration of the Bill if the Committee were to continue in the way in which it has been operating.

Senator Webster - Why do you think it is reasonable?
