Senator CHIPP (Leader of the Australian Democrats)(9.38) —Clearly, I did not spell out the reasons when I was on my feet tonight. I thought these matters were dealt with in the light of other matters that we discussed and because of the very helpful and frank discussions that have been held elsewhere on the National Crime Authority Bill between the three parties concerned. I thought it was sufficient simply to move the amendments for the reasons that were well known. In the event, Senator Evans has, much more eloquently than I, given the reasons for the amendments which I have here. If he wants me to take up the Committee's time in a boring way and simply repeat what I have written down here than I will do it. But I did not think there was any purpose in doing that.


The CHAIRMAN —The question is that amendment No. (9) moved by Senator Chipp to the Attorney-General's amendment No. (16) be agreed to.

Amendment agreed to.


The CHAIRMAN —The question is that Senator Chipp's amendment No. (10) to the Attorney-General's amendment No. (16) be agreed to.

The CHAIRMAN —The question is that the Attorney-General's consequential amendments, including his amendment No. (16), as amended, be agreed to.
