Senator GREENWOOD (VictoriaAttorneyGeneral) - 1 welcome the general change in approach which has been shown to us by Senator Murphy. I can assure him that we shall do ali we can to speed the further discussion of this measure and the matters which the Opposition wants to discuss on the clauses. But I say only 2 things: There has been no deliberate provocation on my part and there is no foundation whatsoever for the statement made by Senator Murphy. Secondly, there was no deliberate attempt by the Government by the introduction of the amendment which I moved last Friday to prolong the debate on those clauses of the Bill to the exclusion of other matters which the Opposition may have wanted to discuss. I make this statement only to clarify an erroneous statement by Senator Murphy and to enable it to be put on the record.
