Senator DURACK(4.53) —Senator Button has persuaded me to be of one mind instead of two on this matter as a result of what he has said; also, as a result of the great practical difficulties that anyone would have in being able to exercise this right if he had it, in these circumstances. Because of the very special nature of the exercise in which we are engaged, its very limited nature, as Senator Button has stressed, I shall not move the amendment that I have circulated. However, I am very pleased to note Senator Button's comments on behalf of the Government, and to note Senator Chipp's comments in acceding to them. This is a very special case and the Government will not be pursuing a policy of depriving people of the great rights that have been developed in recent years of judicial review of administrative decisions.

Bill agreed to, with amendments; report adopted.
