Senator DURACK (Western Australia)

In sub-clause ( I ), leave out paragraphs (b), (c) and (d).

These 3 paragraphs of clause 12 provide power for the Minister to direct the States to set up departmental bodies to carry out planning and to furnish advice in connection with roadwords They also give power to the Minister to insist on having representatives of the Australian Government on those bodies. The Opposition believes that that is an unnecessary intrusion into the States' powers and functions in these matters. That is why we propose the amendments.
