Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral and Leader of the Government in the Senate) - by leave- The intention of the Government is to proceed with the Bill which I have just introduced. I should indicate that this Bill is substantially and very largely the same as the previous Bill. Several amendments have been introduced into the Bill which probably would have been introduced at the Committee stage when the previous Bill was before the Senate. As I have indicated there are some other matters which would be appropriate for consideration at the Committee stage of this Bill.

Senator Withers - The other Bill no longer needs study?

Senator MURPHY

Senator Withers - That is basically all I wanted to know.

Senator MURPHY -The Bill is substantially the same. As I indicated in opening there are certain matters to be considered at the Committee stage. I stress that I have not received any representations that could not appropriately be dealt with at the Committee stage. It is for that reason that I suggest, with very great respect, that the Senate ought to allow this matter to proceed. If there are any matters which it is felt should be put forward it will be appropriate to do so at the Committee stage of the Bill.

Debate (on motion by Senator Greenwood) adjourned.

Motion (by Senator Murphy) proposed:

That the resumption of the debate be made an order of the day for the next day of sitting.
