Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - I rise, firstly, simply to reject the suggestion made by Senator James McClelland that the purpose or intention of putting the amendment forward was that which he ascribed to the Opposition and, secondly, to indicate that what Senator Little has suggested is acceptable to the Opposition. The Opposition will include in the amendment which it has proposed words of the nature that Senator Little has suggested. However, as a matter of drafting I suggest for Senator Little's consideration that what should be put in are the words 'or a person eligible to be a member' after the word ' member' where it first appears in the amendment. The amendment would then read: 'Another employee being a member or a person eligible to be a member of his organisation on those premises'.

Senator Little - There is no objection from me. It means the same thing.

Senator GREENWOOD - I agree with Senator Little that it means the same thing. Probably the penalty of having a lawyer in this place when a proposition of this character is raised is that he endeavours to put amendments in a form which is agreeable to the draftsman. I seek leave to amend the Opposition's amendment in that way.
