Senator WRIEDT (Tasmania) (Minister for Primary Industry) - The Committee will recall that during the earlier part of the debate on the Fisheries Bill the Opposition moved an amendment which had a consequential effect upon other clauses of the Bill. The removal of the automatic forfeiture provisions of clause 20 required certain amendments to other clauses of the Bill. At the time the Committee decided to seek leave to sit again until such time as the draftsmen could have time to see what the effect of the removal of this forfeiture clause would be. As a result there are certain consequential amendments to both the Fisheries Bill and the Continental Shelf (Living Natural Resources) Bill. I suggest, if the Opposition is agreeable, that the amendments be taken together. I can see no reason why this could not be the case. I think it would save a great deal of time if they could be taken together.

Senator LAWRIE (QUEENSLAND) - That is the amendments taken together in each Bill?

Senator WRIEDT - Yes. I just leave that for the moment.
