The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Wilkinson (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - Is it the wish of the Committee that the Bills be taken as a whole?

Senator Wright - No, department by department.

Motion (by Senator Douglas McClelland) proposed:

(   1 ) That clauses 1 to 6 and the First Schedule be postponed until after the consideration of the Second Schedule; (2) that, unless otherwise ordered, the votes in the Second Schedule be considered in the same groupings and order as in the Estimates Committee.

Senator Wright - I would like clarification of that. I asked that at the Committee stage the Bills be dealt with department by department. That would not be inconsistent with the groupings referred to by the Minister. I would like the Minister to clarify whether his understanding of the motion is to the contrary.

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am deputising for Senator Willesee but I believe that it was understood that the departments would be dealt with in those groupings. If Senator Wright wants them on a departmental basis, I am prepared to agree to it.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Second Schedule.

Attorney-General's Department

Proposed expenditure, $37,85 1,000.
