Senator COTTON (New South Wales) - This follows a discussion in the House of Representatives where the matter was debated rather fully, The proposal was to increase the period from 12 months to 2 years. At that time the Government indicated that it was content to do so. The Government has kept its word by bringing forward this amendment on its own account in the Senate. It could not be done in the House of Representatives; they ran out of time for some particular reason that I cannot elicit. I am informed that at the time it was being discussed in the House of Representatives the Government indicated that it could see no problem in our amendment No. 3, which is designed to insert after the word 'industry', everywhere it occurs, the following words: 'or to a particular group or groups of primary or secondary industries'. That would go right through this clause. I suggest that as an addition, consequent to what the Minister has moved himself.
