Mr GALVIN (KINGSTON, SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I ask the AttorneyGeneral: Has he read the strong criticism of the proposed new divorce court rules which has been made by the president of the South Australian Law Society? Is it correct that South Australian courts, 30 years ago, abandoned rules similar to those now proposed? Will the proposed rules prove more costly to the public in South Australia and cause further delay? Has the Minister been approached to allow the courts in South Australia to continue to function under their well-tried existing procedures? Will the Matrimonial Causes Act 1959 still come into operation on 16th January, or does the honorable gentleman intend to treat the suggested alterations of the proposed rules with his usual flexibility and announce further amendments later?

Suggest corrections
