Senator STEELE HALL (South AustraliaLeader of the Liberal Movement) - The Minister seems to have a reasonable argument, and I wonder what other honourable senators who have expressed an opinion on this amendment would think if we left paragraph (c) in subclause 9 and added the words 'with the approval of the State'. That certainly would meet the Minister's argument. I know that the word 'approval' would appear twice in the paragraph, but it would not destroy the meaning of the paragraph. Paragraph (c) could read: with the approval of the State revoke an approval of particulars of a project approved by him.

Senator Sir Magnus Cormack - 'With the concurrence ' or ' with the agreement '.

Senator STEELE HALL -That is better wording. I will adopt the wording 'with the concurrence of the State' or 'with the agreement of the State'. I ask permission to withdraw my amendment and to move a fresh amendment.

The CHAIRMAN - Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator STEELE HALL - I thank the members of the Committee for suggesting the better wording. I move:

In sub-clause (9), insert after paragraph '(c)' the words with the agreement of the State'.
