Senator MASON (New South Wales) - I do not wish to delay the Committee. Purely as a matter of form I indicate the approval of the Australian Democrats for the amendment, very much for the reasons Senator

Button mentioned. We feel that in this case the widest possible scope should be given to the people who are doing the work. I think it would be as well if the Parliament were to know just what is going on in the way of directions from the Minister for Administrative Services, not because it has any lack of faith in the Minister's discretion but rather because in a matter of such broad scope perhaps no one person can exercise judgment to the extent that might be desired. The Australian Democrats supports the amendment.
