Mr COPE (Watson) .- Mr. Chairman,I believe that there is quite a lot in what the honorable member for Moreton (Mr. Killen) had to say about the need for divorce proceedings to be heard in public. However, I believe, at the same time, that a matter of paramount importance that we must keep in mind is the effect of such court proceedings. Publication of details in the way in which we have known them to be published in the past can greatly affect the children of a marriage. In their interests, I intend to vote for the clause as it now stands.
