Senator MURPHY (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will the AttorneyGeneral tell the Senate when the longpromised legislation to deal with restrictive practices and monopolies will be introduced into the Parliament?

Senator GREENWOOD - I am happy to remind Senator Murphy that on . 24th May the Government made a statement which detailed what it had in mind for legislation to deal with strengthened . control of restrictive trade practices. That statement was made for the purpose , of enabling those who were interested in the subject to study it and to make representations. Shortly after the statement was made, it was indicated that it was the Government's intention to introduce the legislation into the Parliament in the current session and, if the Parliament approved, to have the legislation passed in this session. That was the Government's intention and, as I understand it, it is an intention which will be able to be effectuated. The' problem at the moment is to have the Bill, which necessarily is a complex measure, drafted.
