The CHAIRMAN - The Committee will take the Bill as a whole, with the exception of clauses 5 and 6. Senator Wright has asked that the amendments circulated in his name be taken together. Senator Wright, which are the amendments that are to be taken together?

Senator WRIGHT -All those on the sheet which has been circulated. Their effect is produced in the reprinted Bill. The effect of my request that they be taken together, if accepted, would be that the Committee would then agree that the Bill before us is as printed in the new Bill.

Senator Murphy - That would not prejudice our consideration of any of the clauses?

Senator Withers - No.

Senator Murphy - So long as that is understood, there is no objection.

The CHAIRMAN -Is it the wish of the Committee that the amendments be considered together?

Senator Poyser - I want to ask Senator Wright a question about the amendments that he has circulated. Senator Wright has included a clause 8a. That will become clause 8, not clause 8a, will it not?

Senator WRIGHT -That is so.

The CHAIRMAN -There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator WRIGHT -I move the following amendments:

No. 1- Page 1, Title, leave out ", and to set aside an Area on Capital Hill to be known as the National Garden of Australia ".

No. 2- Page 1, clause 3, leave out the clause, insert the following new clause: " 3. In this Act-

Parliamentary grounds' means the grounds comprising the land delineated by red lines on the plan set out in the Schedule.

".

No. 3- Page 2, clause 7, leave out the clause.
