Mr KERIN (Minister for Primary Industry)(4.34) —I will not respond to all the larrikin-type comments made by the honourable member for Darling Downs ( Mr McVeigh). It is true that I received a telex on Monday and we acted on it straight away. I believe that the primacy of parliament should hold in a matter when we are moving amendments. Of course we will notify Wander (Australia) Pty Ltd at the correct time and in the correct way of exactly what occurred. The honourable member for Darling Downs also asked me a question about where the $1m is. It is in a bank account in Hong Kong held by Asia Dairy Industries (Hong Kong) Ltd.

Amendments agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with amendments; report-by leave-adopted.
