Mr BEAZLEY (Fremantle) (Minister for Education) - I move:

Omit the clause, substitute the following clause:

2.   This Act shall be deemed to have come into operation "on 17th June, 1973.'.

Since the first Bill was introduced a second Bill, the States Grants (Universities) Bill (No. 2) 1973, which concerns special grants for increasing the number of social workers in training at the universities of Sydney and Melbourne, has been passed, and it is necessary to deem the first Bill to have come into force before the second Bill. To enable this to be done a further amendment to the first Bill is now proposed. I have circulated the amendment. In place of the words This Act shall come into operation on the day on which it receives the Royal Assent' the amendment proposes to substitute the following words:

This Act shall be deemed to have come into operation on 17th June, 1973.

This amendment to clause 2 will require the Bill to go back to the Senate for a second time for its acceptance.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Resolution reported; report adopted.

Motion (By Mr Beazley) agreed to:

That in the message returning the Bill to the Senate the Senate bc requested to reconsider the Bill in respect of the amendment made by the House of Representatives to clause 2.

Suggest corrections
