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.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN

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.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - The

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be amended, so we would move an amendment to the effect that clause 3 stand part of the Bill provided that clause 9 is rescinded and new clauses 9 and 9 (a) are substituted.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN

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


Senator Byrne - To this amendment?


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

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?


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN -

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