Wednesday, 1 December 1976

Mr VINER (Stirling) (Minister for Aboriginal Affairs) - by leave- I move:

That so much of the Standing Orders be suspended as would prevent the introduction and second reading of an Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Bill 1976 [No. 2].

I should explain that with the concurrence of the Opposition, action has been taken to reprint the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Bill 1976 which is presently before this House as Order of the Day No. 1. The reprinted Bill incorporates the amendments which I foreshadowed m my statement to the House on 17 November and which were circulated that day. The reprinted Bill will facilitate consideration of the legislation by honourable members. It is intended to discharge the existing Order of the Day when the House has passed the reprinted Bill.
