Mr HAYDEN (Oxley) (Minister for Social Security) - I have an amendment which relates to clause 2. Clause 2 reads:

This Act shall come into operation on the day on which it receives the Royal Assent.

I move:

Omit 'the day on which it receives the Royal Assent', insert '3 July 1973.'

The amendment merely adjusts the date of commencement for the benefits for the supporting mothers under the provisions of the National Health Bill.This amendment was made necessary because of the assistance the Opposition gave in passing the Bill through all stages today.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with an amendment; report - by leave - adopted.
