Mr SWARTZ (Darling Downs) (Minister for Civil Aviation) (1:10 AM) - I move:

That the amendments be disagreed to.

Very briefly, the amendments which have been returned from the other place make substantial alterations to the Bill which had been passed in this House and submitted to the Senate. Because amendments of this sort should not be made without a careful study of all policy implications, and as this would involve consultation with various Commonwealth agencies, and in some cases with staff associations, the Government cannot accept the first amendment.

In relation to the second amendment, this also is not acceptable because several of the provisions affected were part of an agreement in the Joint Council, which includes representatives of staff associations. So for those reasons 'the Government cannot accept the amendments.

Suggest corrections
