Senator BUTTON (Minister for Industry, Technology and Commerce)(11.07) —I begin what I have to say as one would normally begin a letter-that is by saying that I refer to previous discussions. I move:

Page 10, after proposed new sub-section 26M (2), insert the following new sub-section:

'(2A) Directions and any revocation of any directions published under sub-section (2) shall be laid before each House of the Parliament within 15 sitting days of that House after the publication in the Gazette of the directions or any revocation.'.

Therefore, proposed new section 26M (2) reads as follows:

The Minister shall forthwith cause to be published in the Gazette particulars of any directions given under sub-section (1) and of any revocation of any such directions.

Section 26M (2A) will state:

Directions and any revocation of any directions published under sub-section (2) shall be laid before each House of the Parliament within 15 sitting days of that House after the publication in the Gazette of the directions or any revocation.
