Dr J F CAIRNS (Lalor) (Minister for Overseas Trade) - The amendment is quite acceptable. In the first part of it, the words to be inserted after 'the produce of the sea' which are: specified in the Convention on International Trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora . . . may not be necessary because my understanding of the proposed sub-section is that it does nothing more than make complete application of the provisions of that Convention anyway. But I see no reason why the Government should not accede to the Opposition's request for special mention of this matter in this provision. The second part of the amendment seeks the inclusion of the following words:

The regulations shall specify those species of wild fauna and flora which are applicable to the provisions of the Convention on International Trade in endangered species of wild fauna and flora.

I see no reason why those words should not be included in the provision. I think it is quite proper that the regulation should specify those species of wild fauna and flora which are applicable. I think there is no reason why the suggested words should not be included.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with an amendment; report - by leave - adopted.
