Sir GARFIELD BARWICK (Parramatta) (AttorneyGeneral) . - I move -

Omit the definition of " decree ", insert the following definition: - " ' decree ' means decree, judgment or order, and includes a decree nisi and an order dismissing a petition or application or refusing to make a decree or order;".

Let me explain the reason for this amendment. In clause 66 there is a provision that the parties must obtain from the judge an approval of the arrangements for the children. On examination, it was realized that it was possible that a refusal to approve the arrangements for the children might not be caught up in the definition of decree. For that reason the definition of decree is extended to include a refusal to make an order or decree.

Amendment agreed to.
