Mr HOWARD (Bennelong) (Minister for Business and Consumer Affairs) - I move:

In proposed section 7a (4), omit 'Commission', substitute Tribunal'.

The purpose of this amendment is purely to correct a printing error which appeared in the original amending Bill.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 8 to 15- by leave- taken together, and agreed to.

Clause 16.

(   1 ) Section 1 8 ofthe Principal Act is amended-

(a)   by omitting from sub-section (1) the figures and word '30 days' and substituting the figures and word 90 days';

(b)   by omitting from sub-section (2) the figures and word '30 days' and substituting the figures and word 90 days'; and

(c)   by omitting sub-section (8) and substituting the following sub-sections:-

*(8c) An exemption granted in pursuance of an authorization given under sub-section (8) shall not be revoked unless-

(a)   the Tribunal is satisfied that the circumstances by reason of which the exemption was granted no longer exist or that there has been a material change in those circumstances; and

(b)   the Chairman has given to the company or companies concerned 14 days' notice in writing of his intention to revoke the exemption. '.

(2)   Notwithstanding the amendment made by paragraph (D(c)-

(a)   any authorization given by the Tribunal under subsection 18 (8) of the Principal Act that was in force immediately before the commencement of this subsection shall have effect as if it had been given under sub-section 1 8 ( 8 ) of the Principal Act as amended by this Act; and

(   b) any exemption granted in pursuance of an authorization given under sub-section 18 (8) of the Principal Act, being an exemption that was in force immediately before the commencement of this sub-section, shall be deemed to have been granted in pursuance of an authorization given under sub-section 18(8) of the Principal Act as amended by this Act.

The DEPUTY CHAIRMAN (Mr Giles)-I wonder whether the Opposition will allow the Minister to move 4 amendments together. It seems to me that that will facilitate the conduct of the debate. Is leave granted? There being no objection, I will allow that course to be followed.
