The CHAIRMAN (Mr Lucock (LYNE, NEW SOUTH WALES) - Order! The question is:

That the amendments be agreed to.

Before calling on the Minister for Health I point out that amendments Nos. 3, 5, 6, the first part of amendment No. 8, and amendment No. 9 on the Opposition's circulated list are out of order because they would increase the amount of appropriation required. Therefore, the amendments before the Committee are those numbered 4, 7 and the second part of 8.


Dr Everingham - May 1 speak briefly on a point of order? My understanding is that if the effect of an amendment is to require a specific appropriation of revenue it is out of order. I submit, that that is doubtful in respect of these amendments because it is unlikely that any additional appropriation of revenue would be necessary.


The CHAIRMAN - In my opinion all of the amendments that I have ruled out of order would increase the appropriation required. To that degree they are out of order.


Dr Klugman - Mr Chairman, to enable me to discuss the amendments that you have ruled out of order would it be in order for me to move that we postpone consideration of a particular clause as we did in respect of amendment No. 1 on the Opposition's circulated list?


The CHAIRMAN - We are considering clauses 7 to 18 together, and we are therefore considering all of the amendments together. The remaining amendments are Nos. 4, 7 and the second part of No. 8


Dr Klugman - So that I may speak to amendment No. 3 is it in order for me to move that the particular clause be postponed?


The CHAIRMAN - No. I have ruled that amendment out of order. The only amendments before the Committee are those that 1 have not ruled out of order.


Mr Hayden - On a point of order, Mr Chairman, will the honourable member be in order in discussing the particular clause?


The CHAIRMAN - The honourable member will be in order in discussing the clause.
