Senator BYRNE (Queensland) - I ask leave of the Senate to make an amendment. I preface my remarks by saying that yesterday the Senate was gracious enough to accord me leave to bring in a Bill described as the 'Prices Limitation Bill 1972' and to take it to the first reading stage which was passed by resolution of the Senate. Due to an oversight there was an insertion in that Bill which I wish to delete. I ask leave of the Senate to delete from clause 3 of the Bill, which is the definition of 'industrial agreement', the words in the last 4 lines of the definition. After the word 'Commonwealth' where it occurs in the fourth last line of the definition 'industrial agreement' I ask leave to delete the words: 'But does not include an agreement, arrangement, understanding, award, order or determination the making of which arose out of, or took place in the course of, conciliation or arbitration proceedings before such a court or tribunal'. I ask for the graciousness of the Senate to delete those words so that the Bill in the form in which it was proposed and inadvertently not presented may proceed to further stages and pass through this chamber in the form in which we desire.

Senator Devitt - What is it?

Senator BYRNE - It is a private members Bill to restrict increases in the prices of certain goods and services.
