Mr ELLICOTT (WentworthAttorneyGeneral) -Sub-clause 2(4) states:

Section 25 and 26, sub-section 29 (2) and section 33 of this Act shall come into operation on the day on which the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1 976 comes into operation or, if the Act has come into operation before the day on which this Act receives the Royal Assent, those sections and that sub-section shall be deemed to have come into operation on the day on which that Act came into operation.

I move:

At the end of sub-clause (4), add 'but the amendments made by sub-sections 26(1) and 29(2) of this Act do not apply in relation to a wreck situated in waters (including waters above the continental shelf) adjacent to the coast of a State until the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976 applies in relation to those waters '.

The addition of these words will have the effect of ensuring that proposed new sub-sections 26( 1 ) and 29(2) ofthe Bill do not apply until the Historic Shipwrecks Act 1976 comes into force. As a result proposed new sections 25, 26 and 29 which refer to the Historic Shipwrecks

Act will come into force when that Act comes into force.
