Mr WEST (Minister for Immigration and Ethnic Affairs)(11.04) —Section 14 relates to security. The Opposition's amendment relates to criminal deportation and should have been applied to section 12. Section 12 should have been amended by honourable members opposite long ago but they did not do so. They left section 12 in a situation which meant they were even deporting people in mental institutions, prostitutes and people in charitable institutions.

Question put:

That the amendment (Mr Hodgman's) be agreed to.
