Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - The Opposition offers no objections to the Service and Execution of Process Bill. It is a machinery Bill. It is brought in because of the change to the metric system. It ensures that under the Service and Execution of Process Act, with regard to the issuing of writs of summons under that Act, an address for appearance is given. The distance within which an appearance is required to be entered by a party is to be hereafter described in kilometres rather than in miles. I note that 5 miles becomes 10 kilometres. This seems a reasonable step to take. The figure is easy to recall. The Opposition offers no objection.
