Senator JESSOP (South Australia) - I would like to support briefly Senator Baume 's amendment. It seems to me that it is an ideal compromise which provides an opportunity for one partner, who agrees that there is some chance of repairing the marriage, to be given what I believe to be a more adequate period- 2 years- to do that. It provides also the opportunity for those people who both agree that their marriage should be dissolved to effect dissolution in a relatively short time. I commend Senator Baume for offering this alternative which I believe is an ideal compromise. I support him.
