Senator MURRAY(12.23 p.m.) —I wish to commend the government on their amendment. I commend them for responding to the entreaties of the Senate committee and for listening to the arguments that were put. I think that is the way in which the Senate should operate: a hearing is held, a view is taken and the government reacts positively to that view. I commend you for your amendment. We will support it.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Patterson) —The question is that item 12 of schedule 1 stand as printed.

Question resolved in the negative.
