Senator MURPHY (New South Wales) (Leader of the Opposition) - The purpose of the proposed amendment to clause 4 is related really to the State Acts rather than the position in Commonwealth places. It is this derivative law to which it is directed. Senator Greenwood raised a question which he says correctly is already covered by the earlier matter. Perhaps Senator Greenwood might agree with me that the issue which he thought was being introduced is not being raised. The Bill relates really to Commonwealth places. That is what is being covered by this proposal. On that basis, whilst the amendment is a subsidiary matter, it means that there will be uniformity. I ask the Committee to agree to the amendment.
