Mr KELVIN THOMSON (5:52 PM) —The reason we are not going to support this is that we are entitled to have a consideration in detail stage to debate the 120 amendments which this opposition has moved because we regard these as substantial bills which need to be properly debated so that we can protect Commonwealth places such as Point Nepean, Point Cook, the Georges River and Myilly Point in Darwin—a whole host of heritage places which these bills will place at risk if we allow them to go through unamended. If these bills are passed without amendment, the heritage protection for some of this nation's crucial heritage areas will be diminished as a result.

Mr ABBOTT (Warringah—Leader of the House) (5.53 p.m.)—I move:

That the question be now put.

Question put.
