Senator SHERRY (5:06 PM) —I indicate that the Labor Party will be supporting these amendments. As Senator Murray has pointed out, there are 62 amendments. I have to say that when I looked at the amendments I saw that most of them say exactly the same thing. I understand that, because of the design of the bill, there are a very significant number of amendments that have almost identical wording in most cases. So, whilst I would normally be concerned if they were all differently worded and dealt with different issues, I think in this case we are basically dealing with the one broad amendment, despite the fact that it is structured in the form of 62 amendments.

Question agreed to.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Hutchins)—The question is that schedule 1, items 14 and 15, stand as printed.

Question negatived.
