Senator LAUCKE (South Australia) - Would it not be simpler to leave the clause as it originally appeared and then move a motion to add the words 'or advise'. It was my understanding that the words in italics- 'but failure to comply with such direction does not constitute a contempt of the court'- were to come out of the clause. Is it not easier to adhere to the original clause adding only the words 'or advise'? Then we have not weakened the clause to a degree which in my opinion makes it meaningless.

The CHAIRMAN - The amendment is for Senator Murphy to amend further. I propose to put the question that the amendment as amended by Senator Murphy be agreed to. Is the Committee familiar with the amendment?

Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson - No.
