Senator MURPHY (New South WalesAttorneyGeneral) - I move:

Insert the following new sub-clause: "(6) Where the Board has abolished all the offices in a branch or other part of a Department and created offices in another Department the duties of which are substantially the same as the duties of all or any of the offices that were abolished, this section applies as if that branch or other part of that first-mentioned Department were a separate Department and the abolition of the offices in that branch or other part of that Department were the abolition of that separate Department." '.

Senator Greenwood - Would you briefly state what is being put?

Senator MURPHY - This amendment seeks to add new sub-clause (6) to clause 9 which is proposed section 50a. As presently drafted proposed section 50a applies only where a department is abolished. This is in accordance with the Joint Council of the Australian Public Service recommendation. The Government feels, however, that the new section should also cover situations where part of a department is transferred to another department. The proposed new subclause (6) will extend the operation of proposed section 50a in this manner.
