Mr CONNOR (Cunningham) (Minister for Minerals and Energy) - I move:

That the Senate amendment No. 2 be disagreed to.

Senate amendment No. 2 relates to the insertion of the proposed new clause 16a, which is referred to as the common carrier clause. In my own case, I stated that the Pipeline Authority would be in the position of a common carrier. I should have added that that would be in relation to a special contractual arrangement with the Australian Gas

Light Co. Ltd and for no other. That is the very essence of the arrangement which was entered into and which we will honour to the letter. The agreement has yet to be finalised, but it will be a matter of about 20 to 25 per cent of the capacity of the pipeline being allocated to the transmission of gas the property of the Australian Gas Light Co. Ltd.
