Senator DURACK(1.10) —The Opposition will give very firm support to this measure. It gives effect to a very valuable report of the Law Reform Commission on the subject of foreign state immunity, which needs some firm and clear rules which this Bill will provide. In view of the fact that the reference was given to the Law Reform Commission when I was Attorney-General, it is doubly pleasing that we now have a report, and legislation giving effect to it in a reasonably speedy way. We are pleased to support the Bill.
