Senator BROWN (10:41 PM) —On behalf of Senator Nettle, I move amendment (4) on sheet 2705:

(4) Clause 23, page 17 (lines 3 and 4), omit paragraph (b), substitute:

(b) remains in force for the lesser of the following periods:

(i) until two years after the licence comes into effect; or

(ii) until the day it is suspended, revoked or surrendered; or

(iii) until the day specified in the licence.

This amendment is also self-explanatory. Instead of allowing a licence to be given according to the licensing committee for any period of time, the amendment effectively means that the licence remains in force for up to two years, unless it is suspended for some matter, and will then need renewal. It is actually putting a time limit on that licence.

Question negatived.
