Mr LIONEL BOWEN (Attorney-General)(5.00) —by leave-I move:

(15) Clause 9, page 10, line 39, omit ``a law'', substitute ``this Act or of a law of a State''.

(2) Clause 9, page 10, line 42, omit ``law'', substitute ``provision''.

I am advised that amendment (15) to clause 9, which has been circulated, clarifies the wording in clause 9 paragraph (2) (a) by providing that the Federal Court of Australia, the Family Court of Australia or the Supreme Court of a Territory may exercise cross-vested jurisdiction conferred by a State law as well as that conferred by the Jurisdiction of Courts (Cross-vesting) Bill. The additional amendment (2) is consequential on amendment (15) and corrects a drafting error.

Amendments agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 10 (Transfer of matters arising under Division 1 or 1a of Part V of the Trade Practices Act).
