Senator CAVANAGH (South Australia) - I ask in all temerity that the Attorney-General (Senator Greenwood) look at clause 3 of the Bill in the light of remarks that I made during the debate on the second reading and the possibility of convictions being obtained on evidence which the Senate may later decide was not proper or should not have been admitted. I do not know how long this exclusive body, the Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs, will take to consider the question, but with the greatest respect I ask whether it is necessary to extend the operation of the Act for 12 months to enable this consideration to be given.
