Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I suggest that we carry that amendment so that we have the plain text of the clause before us, without any prejudice to the right of an honourable senator to seek to delete the words under discussion; otherwise it will be difficult to get the text of the clause. I think this is the convenient way. I suggest that we deal with that amendment without any prejudice to the right of any senator to seek to delete any words subsequently.

The CHAIRMAN - Do I take it from what Senator Missen said that there would be an amendment seeking to delete certain words?

Senator Missen - Seeking to delete the words shown in amendment No. 18.

The CHAIRMAN - I suggest that it would be more convenient if Senator Murphy's amendment were amended by inserting the words 'or advise'. The other words can be deleted in accordance with amendment No. 1 8.

Senator MURPHY -If what I have moved is carried I shall be content. I suggest that the clause as it is amended be carried without prejudice to the right of any senator to move sub.sequently for a deletion of words. If such a subsequent amendment is carried, then it is carried, but if it is not the clause would stand in the form in which I am happy for it to remain. I do not want to move any further amendments. I would be content if it were put as it is amended and any senator can move an amendment to it later.
