Thursday, 5 December 1974

Mr SINCLAIR (New England) -Mr Deputy Speaker,I move:

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the second reading debate of the Phosphate Fertilizers Bounty Bill 1974 being continued forthwith, and the Bill being voted on.

I move this motion because we believe that it is necessary for this legislation, covering the bounty which is to expire on 3 1 December of this year, to be voted on. We do not believe it adequate that the consideration of the legislation be adjourned indefinitely. Today the House rises. The matter presumably will come on at some indeterminate date next year. By that stage, the bounty will have terminated. We believe it imperative that this House make a decision with respect to the Bill by voting on it today before the House rises.
