The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - The principles have been agreed to but the agreement has not been signed, so it has not been finalised. It would appear that it would be a better procedure if the amendment were moved so that it was associated with clause 3 of the Bill.

Senator Byrne - That is what I suggested earlier in my speech.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - 1 think it would be better from our point of view if you could move your amendment so that it is associated with clause 3.

Senator Cotton - I would be happy to accept that procedure.


Would you agree to that, Senator Byrne?

Senator Byrne - What would you suggest then might be the mode-

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - You could attach that amendment as a recommendation to clause 3 of the Bill.

Senator Byrne - As a recommendation, Mr Temporary Chairman? That would be a different matter. We propose to make this not merely a recommendation but an operative amendment, which in fact would change the text of the proposed agreement.


Clerk advises that clause 3 could be authorised subject to this amendment.

Senator Byrne - We will have to get a form of words to accommodate that proposition. What it means is that clause 3 picks up the Schedule. We suggest that the Schedule should be amended, so we would move an amendment to the effect that clause 3 stand part of the Bill provided that clause 9 is rescinded and new clauses 9 and 9 (a) are substituted.


Order! The Schedule to this Bill is authorised subject to the amendment which you have moved.

Senator Byrne - To this amendment?


Really it would be subject to leaving out clause 9 and then dealing with the amendment.

Senator Byrne - Could we get the precise form of words to carry into operation what is now proposed?


While Senator Mulvihill is talking we will have drafted the form of words to be used.
