Debate resumed from 10 October, on motion by Senator Gietzelt:

That the Bill be now read a second time.

Amendment (by Senator Durack) agreed to:

At end of motion, add, 'but the Senate is of the opinion that a suitable person should be commissioned to ascertain the wishes of the Australian citizens on Christmas Island as to which electoral division of Australia they should be included in for the purposes of participating in elections for the Commonwealth Parliament and referendums under the Commonwealth Constitution.'

Original question, as amended, resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
