Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - There may be some disadvantage to Senator Greenwood in the way the matter has proceeded. What has happened is that the Committee has added the words 'or advise' and the words 'or advice'. I would be content to leave the matter as it is. I was proposing to remove all words after 'but failure' because they were irrelevant if we used only the word 'advise'. But now the words 'direct' and direction' are in the clause I think the convenient course would be for Senator Greenwoodif he wants there to be a contempt of court if the parties do not accept the advice- to move the amendment himself. I am satisfied with the clause as it stands.
