Mr HUNT -I thank the House. Since that meeting and since those actions were taken, work has been proceeding on the development of options for Government consideration, and at the appropriate time the Government's final policy will be announced. Until that has been done and the options properly considered by the Government in association with the States and other related organisations, it would not be wise for us to be rushed into hasty and ill-prepared conclusions which could in any event be difficult to put into practice. I should like to make it clear once again that the Government does not oppose the fundamental aspects of the Bill and would like to consider them. Therefore, it would not wish to take a vote on the Bill but would prefer to defer that vote at this stage.
