Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) -Can I be assisted to understand the meaning of the amendment moved by the Minister for Primary Industry (Senator Wriedt)? As I read it, it means that the matter that may be referred to the Commission may be to provide assistance in accordance with a law passed before the commencement of this Act or to provide financial assistance to an industry in accordance with or for the purposes of a law of Australia that is passed or made after the commencement of this Act and before 1 July 1 974. Why, may I ask, are we restricted to laws passed before the commencement of this Act or laws that are passed after the commencement of this Act but before 1 July 1974? Why would the Commission not take into account any laws passed at any time in relation to the industry?
