Senator JOYCE (8:35 PM) —I do not intend to call a division but I want it noted that I would not be supporting amendment (1). If it is just noted on the record, I do not mind, but I am noting now that I see amendment (1) as intrinsically different to the following amendments. Amendment (1) goes to the whole substance of the bill. I feel the bill is not responsive to nor does it advance the interests of wheat growers, and we have proved tonight that it is technically inadequate. It certainly does not reflect the overall sentiment of wheat growers. So I would not be supporting amendment (1). With the following amendments, though I feel they are not so much non-controversial as inconsequential, I will support them as a mechanism to ventilate this issue further.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Moore)—I put the question that amendments (1), (7), (8) and (9) on sheet 5488 moved by Senator Minchin on behalf of the Liberal Party be agreed to.
