Senator MARGETTS(11.41 a.m.) —I move:

1.   Schedule 1, item 3, page 3 (lines 16 to 18), omit the item.

This is the item reducing the number of councillors. As I mentioned in my speech, I think this has been arbitrary. There is a lot of concern in the community as to what it means in terms of community representation, the future distribution of services and decision making on an ongoing basis. Therefore, we oppose the reduction of the number of councillors.

Amendment negatived.
