Senator VIGOR(6.20) —I wish to point out that the Australian Democrats were involved in the tripartite negotiations. We moved the original amendment, which was in fact disallowed in the other House, to make certain that the annual reporting procedures were forced upon departments and statutory bodies and that standards and guidelines of some type were set in. As a result of the negotiations, we accept the Government's undertaking to put the amendment that Senator Button has told us about into the next Statute Law (Miscellaneous Provisions) Amendment Bill and the Australian Democrats will be supporting that amendment.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Resolution reported; report adopted.
