Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I think Senator Baume indicated yesterday that he had put his major arguments in the debate at that time. I believe we have traversed these arguments in great detail during the second reading stage and again during the very long debate on this clause. With respect to the proposition that Senator Baume has put- he has indicated that he would regard this as the precursor- I suggest that we should vote on the matter as soon as we can. I think the issues have been gone into extremely well. All I would add to what has been said is that to introduce an element of consent introduces a difficulty. Certainly it could be overcome, but it has proved to be difficult in practice elsewhere. I think it ought not to be introduced. I would ask the Committee of the Whole not to accept the amendment.
