Senator COLLARD (Leader of the National Party of Australia)(10.06) —I move:

Clause 9, after proposed new sub-section 22C (15), add the following sub-section:

``(16) Where the Minister for Defence, by instrument in writing, declares that, by reason of defence or civil emergency, it is necessary for staff employed under the Naval Defence Act 1910 or the Supply and Development Act 1939 to be engaged in work in circumstances such that regulations made for the purposes of sub-section (13) should not apply in respect of those staff, those regulations shall not apply in respect of those staff until that instrument is revoked by the Minister.'.

I suspect that the speech by the Minister for Finance (Senator Walsh) will be the same on this amendment as it was in the last one. I stand by the amendment. If the Government is basically in favour of the Secretary having that power, let us enshrine it in the legislation.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Remainder of Bill-by leave-taken as a whole, and agreed to.

Bill reported with amendments; report adopted.
