Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - As was previously agreed by the Committee, this clause was dependent on whether clause 4 was amended. Whilst Senator Rae's amendment to clause 4 was not adopted by the Committee yesterday, Senator McManus's amendment was. Senator Rae's present amendment is consequential upon Senator McManus's amendment to clause 4 which was adopted yesterday. The Government objects to Senator

Rae's present amendment. The Government opposes it. Because Senator McManus's amendment was carried yesterday, I do not intend, on behalf of the Government, to divide the Committee on this amendment. I suggest that the vote be taken on the voices. The amendment is a consequential one. Because, in the Government's view, the Bill was emasculated to the extent that it was yesterday, we oppose this amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause 4 (Establishment of Commission).
