Senator BYRNE (Queensland) -Mr Acting Deputy President, I seek leave to make a slight alteration to the amendment which I proposed.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Marriott)- Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.


Senator BYRNE - It is only a small amendment and I will not speak to it. The present form of the amendment states:

The Bill be referred for inquiry and report, as soon as possible, to the Select Committee on Foreign Ownership and Control, which is hereby authorised to consider the Bill.

The alteration I desire to make is to insert certain words so that the amendment would read:

The Bill be referred for inquiry, and report as soon as possible but not later than the twelfth day of March 1 974, to the Select Committee on Foreign Ownership and Control, which is hereby authorised to consider the Bill.

I ask for leave to make that alteration. At the appropriate time when I ask for leave, to move my foreshadowed amendment, it will be in identical form.


Senator Cotton - Should you not say: 'And report to the Senate '?


Senator BYRNE - I suppose that the words and report to the Senate' should be added. I took that for granted. Mr Acting Deputy President, I ask for leave also to insert the words 'to the Senate' after the word 'report'. So the proposed amendment now reads:

The Bill be referred for inquiry, and report to the Senate as soon as possible but not later than the twelfth day of March 1 974, to the Select Committee on Foreign Ownership and Control, which is hereby authorised to consider the Bill.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT- Does the seconder of the amendment agree to the alterations?


Senator Little - Aye.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT- Does the Senate agree to accept the amended form of the amendment? There being no objection, leave is granted to amend the amendment which has been moved.
