Senator JESSOP (South Australia) - I support the amendment moved by Senator Durack. I also support what Senator Hall has said about the state of South Australian roads under a South Australian Labor Government. I find it quite incredible that a former State Liberal Premier would even hesitate about this amendment which seeks to protect a State government from the authority of a Federal, socialist Minister. I find it quite extraordinary that his excuse for contemplating such support for the retention of this clause in the Bill is that a

Federal Labor Minister may be preferable to a State Labor government. As far as I am concerned that sort of excuse is untenable. I urge Senator Hall to reconsider and support our amendment.
