Mr ELLICOTT (WentworthAttorneyGeneral) - I have 4 amendments which refer to clauses 9, 1 7 and 23 which read in part:

Clause 9. (l)Where-

(a)   a person has possession, custody and control of an article; and

(b)   a notice applying in respect of the article is published in the Gazette under section 5 or 6, the person shall, within 30 days after the date of publication of the notice in the Gazette, give the prescribed notice to the Minister in relation to the article.

(4)   Where, after the commencement of this Act, an article that is, or is a part of, a Dutch shipwreck or is a Dutch relic comes into the possession, custody or control of a person, the person shall, within 30 days after the day on which the article comes into his possession, custody or control, give the prescribed notice to the Minister in relation to the article.

Clause 17.

(2)   It is a defence to a prosecution of a person for an offence against sub-section (1) if the person proves that a notice setting out a description of the place where the remains are or the article is situated, being a description that is sufficient to enable the remains or article to be located, was given to the Minister by another person before it was practicable for the first-mentioned person to give such a notice.

Clause 23.

(   5 ) A person shall not-

(a)   without reasonable excuse, fail to comply with a requirement made of him by an inspector in the exercise of a power under this section; or
