The CHAIRMAN - I point out to Senator Mulcahy that if his amendment is not carried, he cannot go back to the word " horticultural " and move that it be struck out. The honorable senator might, therefore, desire to withdraw his present amendment?

Senator CLEMONS(Tasmania). - I would ask whether, if the amendment is not carried, it will still be competent for Senator Mulcahy, if he wishes to do so, to ask the Committee to negative clause76a? I hope that no obstacle will be placed in the way of honorable senators voting to negative clause 76A, even though the amendment should not be carried.

The CHAIRMAN - As amendment No. 74 contains a number of clauses, I am prepared to treat the motion as a complicated one, and divide it, if that is the wish of honorable senators.
