Senator GUILFOYLE (Victoria) - I am not dealing exclusively with the matter to which we have just referred. Before we put the remainder of the clause that deals with the Family Court I wonder if the Attorney-General (Senator Murphy) or the Chairman of the Senate Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs would inform me whether the proposed amendments with regard to the establishment of the Family Court have embraced some of the comments that were made in the Senate Committee's report with regard to the functions and activities which we would hope would be envisaged in the service that this Court would give. The Senate Committee report did suggest that the original clauses be re-drafted to give development to certain functions of the court. I just wonder in a general way if some response can be given as to whether the Senate Committee's recommendations have been upheld.
