Senator WRIEDT (Tasmania) (Leader of the Opposition) - This is a very simple straightforward Bill which the Opposition is not opposing. It provides for the European Communities Commission which is being established in Australia to co-ordinate the activities of the European Economic Community in Australia. This Commission is, I believe, the eleventh of such commissions which have been formed in various countries. Essentially the Bill provides to the personnel of that Commission the privileges and immunities which apply under the I 967 Act.

There is, I believe, no concern on the part of the Opposition as to the intention of the Bill and consequently we are not opposing it.
