Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - As to the date of proclamation, if Senator Greenwood is not prepared to accept the offer I made to him, that if this clause is passed and subsequently he is dissatisfied with it, it could be recommitted, rather than have the debate bogged down on the consideration of one clause, I will simply move that further consideration of this clause be deferred, which would enable the Committee to get on with the task of considering the rest of the Bill. I think everyone would like to come to some kind of conclusion on the matter. Is Senator Greenwood not prepared to accept the offer I have made to facilitate the recommittal of the clause? I offered, without prejudice to him, that if after a subsequent study of the matter he is not satisfied with the explanations that have been given the clause can be recommitted to enable him to put whatever he likes to put or to do whatever he wants to do. Let us get on with the consideration of something else. I ask Senator Greenwood to indicate whether he is prepared to accept my offer or whether I should move that further consideration of this clause be deferred so that we can get on to a consideration of the next part of the Bill.
