Harmless prevarication (5,3)


I believe the answer is:

white lie

(Other definitions for white lie that I've seen before include "Harmless untruth" , "Minor falsehood" , "Justifiable deception" , "A trivial fib" , "when a tactful comment is required" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald.
