Senator McLEAN(7.43) —I move:

(2) Page 4, paragraph 11 (c), line 18, leave out ``Commencement: Day of Royal Assent'', insert ``Commencement: 1 January 1990''.

As Senator Newman has said, a similar amendment was moved in the other place by the shadow Minister, so presumably it will have the Opposition's endorsement here. The amendment will simply delay the implementation of the legislation to allow the recommendations of the McGirr committee to be considered by the Parliament.

Amendment agreed to.
