Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - As I understand it, it means a maintenance agreement that has not been revoked, that has not been set aside. It means one that is in operation. I think there may be something in what Senator Durack says. I do not think it would do any harm if the word 'subsisting' were removed.

Senator Everett - I am prepared to move to omit the word 'subsisting'.

Senator MURPHY -The word 'subsisting' appears in clauses 65( 1 ), 65(3), 65a.(6), 65a.(9) and 65 b. I have had those people who are advising me look through this and may I say that they commend Senator Everett and the other members of the Standing Committee for the proposal which has been made. It seems to be an entirely acceptable one and an improvement on the law.
