Senator GARETH EVANS (Attorney-General)(10.09) —by leave-I move:

(1) Page 6, clause 13, sub-clause (1), proposed paragraph 25B (1) (a), line 19, leave out ',in any industrial agreement', insert 'or any industrial agreement, in any other order (whether executive, judicial or otherwise)'.

(2) Page 7, clause 13, sub-clause (1), proposed section 25D, line 7, after ' decision', insert ', whether the expression ''reasons'', ''grounds'' or any other expression is used,'.

The purpose of the first of the technical amendments circulated, which relates to industrial agreements, is to bring the provision concerned into line with the corresponding provision in the Judiciary Amendment Bill (No. 2) 1984 relating to the Australian Government Solicitor. That amendment will remove any doubt that the provision concerned includes court orders. The second amendment is to make it clear that the provisions concerned extend to a legislative provision requiring a statement of the grounds for the decision to be furnished in the decision. They are purely technical matters, the subject of oversight in the early draft. I understand there is no controversy about them.
