Senator MISSEN (Victoria) -As a representative of Victoria I likewise support this and other amendments in the same vein because they are designed not only to remove this curious requirement for 2 Ministers to agree but also to write into the legislation the requirement that there should be consultation with the States and the appropriate State Ministers. There is no doubt that in the Bill as it stands there is a very grave attack upon the important responsibilities of the States. The view of the Victorian Government on this matter is very clear. Its opposition is forthright. I and other Victorian senators on the Opposition side have pleasure, I am sure, in supporting this amendment and others of a like nature.
