Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - Although I hear some murmurs of disagreement I think Senator Durack is really right in what he is putting. He was intending to move to have a 2-year period instead of 12 months.

Senator Durack - The suggestion was for 3 years.

Senator MURPHY -Certainly, it could be 3 years. For this clause to have any intelligent operation really means that something less than 2 years would be the period of separation. I think that is right. I assume that there would be no great objection to the sub-clause after we had dealt with clause 26. Perhaps Senator Durack would like to come back to this clause later and revise it.

Senator Durack - I am easy on it. I do not want it to get away under my guard.

Senator MURPHY - I would be prepared to agree that we come back and look at the subclause again if the proposal about 26 is carried. There seems to be no objection to the substance of this sub-clause.
