Senator McLEAY (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) asked the Minister representing the Attorney-General, upon notice -

1.   Will the Government give consideration to the question of amending the Acts Interpretation Act in order to give the Senate power to disallow or amend a sub-regulation or a paragraph contained in a statutory rule?

2.   Is there any legal doubt as to the position which arises when a regulation, repealing other regulations, is disallowed? If so, will the Government consider amending the act to place the matter beyond doubt?
