The PRESIDENT —We now proceed to the amendment foreshadowed by Senator Carr printed on sheet 1343 with respect to the A New Tax System (Goods and Services Tax Transition) Bill 1998 .

Amendment (by Senator Carr) put:

At the end of the motion, add:

"but that the Senate condemns the Government:

(a) for its failure to present to the Senate all of the GST legislation in the New Tax System package; and

(b) for deliberately placing before the Senate only one half of the tax package for consideration, by ensuring that the review of business taxation and any changes to business taxation cannot be considered by the Senate at the same time as the GST".
