The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Wilkie)—The House will now consider the bill in detail and take the bill as a whole. The question is that the bill be agreed to. I understand it is the wish of the House that the opposition amendments be moved separately but that the question on each amendment be deferred. After the House has completed its consideration of the amendments, individual questions will be put on each amendment.

Mr BEVIS (Brisbane) [8:25 PM] —I move amendment (1):

(1)    Schedule 7, page 109 (line 2) to page 115 (line 14), omit the Schedule.


The DEPUTY SPEAKER —In accordance with the wish of the House, the question that amendment (1) be agreed to is deferred until after debate has concluded on all the opposition amendments.

Mr BEVIS (Brisbane) [8:25 PM] —I move amendment (2):

(2)    Schedule 7, item 4, page 109 (lines 21-23), omit proposed paragraph (3)(c), substitute:

       “(c)    to urge another person to attempt by force or violence, to procure a change, otherwise than by lawful means, to any matter established by law of the Commonwealth;”.


The DEPUTY SPEAKER —In accordance with the wish of the House, the question that amendment (2) be agreed to is deferred until after debate has concluded on all the opposition amendments.

Mr BEVIS (Brisbane) [8:26 PM] —I move amendment (3):

(3)    Schedule 7, item 12, page 112 (line 29), after proposed section 80.2 insert:
