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 whichit receives the Royal Assent

I move:

Omit the clause, insert the following clause: 2.(1) Subject to sub-section (2), this Act shall come into operation on the day on which it receives the Royal Assent.

(2)   Section 5 shall come into operation on 3 July 1973'.

The purpose of the amendment, as I have mentioned several times already, is to adjust the commencement date under this Bill for supporting mothers who are to commence to benefit under the amendment to Social Services Bill No. 3.

Amendment agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

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

Suggest corrections
