Senator DURACK (Western Australia) - I move:

In sub-clause ( I ), leave out paragraph (c).

The purpose of this amendment is to delete the provision. In substance this is the same objection that we had to clause 4 (1), namely that the States and local authorities out of their own moneys have to make returns to the Federal

Government. Under paragraph (c) the Treasurer can direct that a statement be made in writing setting out information in relation to amounts expended or set aside for expenditure by the State on road works or in relation to expenditure by a municipal, shire or other local authority on road works, as the Treasurer specifies. The same argument applies to this provision as we submitted in respect of the other clauses already dealt with.
