Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Jarman (DEAKIN, VICTORIA) - Order! The honourable member's time has expired.

Mr N.H. BOWEN (Parramatta)- I ask for leave to amend my amendment to the motion for the second reading of this Bill by omitting from the words proposed to be inserted the words 'not declining to give the Bill a second reading speech and'. The motion would then read:

That all the words after 'That' be omitted with a view to inserting the following words in place thereof: this House, while accepting that the question of Sovereignty should be determined, (a) deplores the method adopted by the Government, of proceeding without consultation with the States especially in relation to the code which is contained in Part III of the Bill, and (b) is of opinion that consultations with the States for a co-operative regime for controlling the exploitation of the resources and generous royalty distribution to the States should commence forthwith.'.

Suggest corrections
