Senator SHERRY (Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate)(11.10 p.m.) —I seek leave to separate 313 to 315 and put them separately from 316 to 318. In doing so, I will move 313 to 315. I just indicate to the committee that this is the disamalgamation provision.

Leave granted.

Senator SHERRY —I move:

(313)   Schedule 15, item 18, page 190 (lines 15 to 22), omit section 253ZH, substitute:

      253ZH Object of Division

   The object of this Division is to provide a framework to allow certain constituent parts of organisations amalgamated under Division 7 to withdraw from the amalgamated organisation and to be re-constituted and re-registered in a way that is fair to the members of the organisations concerned and to the creditors of those organisations.

(314)   Schedule 15, item 18, page 191 (lines 12 to 18), omit the definition of constituent part , substitute:

   constituent part , in relation to an amalgamated organisation, means a part of the membership of the amalgamated organisation that would have been eligible for membership of an organisation de-registered under Division 7 in connection with the formation of that amalgamated organisation if that de-registration had not occurred, but does not include a State or Territory branch of an organisation.

(315)   Schedule 15, item 18, page 194 (lines 32 to 33) omit ", or the organisation of which it was a State or Territory branch,".

Question put:

That the amendments (Senator Sherry's ) be agreed to.
