Senator MURPHY (New South WalesLeader of the Opposition) - I have listened carefully to what has been said tonight. I do not wish to enter into a debate on the facts of the incidents, which have been described in various ways. I think that the debate has some serious aspects to it. I think that the AttorneyGeneral (Senator Greenwood) ought not to have made the statement that he made this evening in the way in which he did so. I think what has been said by Senator Carrick and by Senator Wheeldon illustrates the argument which has been put to the. Senate by myself and others on earlier occasions, that is, to do what has been done is prejudicial to the rights of the persons affected and is not the proper practice to be followed in these matters. I will not say any more than that because it follows from what I have said and the view you have expressed, Mr Deputy President, that the less that is said now about the affair the better.
