Senator ALSTON(8.57) —I move:

(42) Page 38, after clause 103, insert the following new clause:

Prohibition of cross-subsidisation

``103a. A carrier shall not cross-subsidise the provision of value added services with funds derived from the provision of reserved services''.

The point has already been made several times that we want to ensure that there is a strict quarantining of the proceeds from Telecom's reserved services so that they are not able to be taken advantage of unfairly in the provision of value added services.

Amendment negatived.
