Senator PETER RAE —by leave- In light of the general support of the Minister for Industry and Commerce (Senator Button) but vote against the specific wording of my amendment, I invite him to consider whether he would accept an amendment to say that the Senate is of the opinion that it is important that the Government give urgent consideration, in the interests of equity and economic efficiency to those questions. If the Minister would be prepared to consider that, I would seek leave to move it as an alternative amendment. It seems to me that there was a bipartisanship in relation to these matters.
