Senator SPINDLER (9.58 p.m.) —I move:

10.Clause 44, page 25, after paragraph (b), add the following paragraph:

"; and (c)all mining leases granted after 31 October 1975.".

This amendment provides for mining leases granted after 31 October 1975 to coexist with native title. This will ensure that Aboriginal people have access to waterholes, sacred sites and other areas of importance to them on those leases.
