Senator SHERRY (12:27 PM) —The opposition opposes schedule 2 in the following terms:

(9) Schedule 2, page 7 (line 2) to page 8 (line 19), TO BE OPPOSED.

Given the constructive amendments that have been made to the bill so far, we believe that the cooling-off periods are no longer appropriate. The commission can deal with the issue satisfactorily, so we believe that the provisions for cooling-off periods should be removed.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN —The question is that schedule 2 stand as printed.

Question negatived.
