Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral and Minister for Customs and Excise) - I move:

That the Bill be now read a third time.

I indicated during the Committee stage that the Government is opposed to the alterations which have been made to this Bill. That has been made very clear. The report which has been adopted has made a very substantial alteration to the proposal which the Government wished to be put to the people and which the House of Representatives has agreed should be put to the people. Having said that, the simplest course is to allow the matter to proceed, the government indicating in this way that the deletions are not acceptable to it.

Suggest corrections
