Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) - I am sorry, but I am not following what is happening. I thought we were dealing with clause 12 and the following clauses. Is it the intention of the Committee to deal with clause 12 when the Bill is recommitted? It seems to me to be inappropriate that we are accepting a Bill as printed when there are proposals to amend proposed section 13 of the Act, the forfeiture section.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - Clause 13 is still open to debate.

Senator WRIGHT -That being so, I want to call the attention of the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt) to it because he has an amendment to move to proposed section 13 and other proposed sections.

Senator Wriedt - An amendment is to be moved to leave out proposed section 13c, but I understand that that will be dealt with when the Bill is returned to the Committee.

Senator WRIGHT - It is immaterial to me, so long as we are not foreclosing that position.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - No. We are not. The Bill will come back to the Committee after we report to the Senate.

Remainder of Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with an amendment.


Motion (by Senator Wriedt) agreed to:

That the Bill be recommitted for reconsideration of clauses 8, Hand 12.

In Committee
