The CHAIRMAN - The question before the Committee is: That the words proposed to be left out be left out.


Senator Durack - I rise to take a point of order, Mr Chairman. It is the whole clause that we are dealing with.


The CHAIRMAN - The question is:

That the clause stand as printed.

Those of that opinion say 'Aye', to the contrary no'. I think the ayes have it.


Senator Greenwood - Divide.


Senator Durack


The CHAIRMAN - I heard the Minister say that he would not call for a division. I thought that I heard the ayes called.


Senator Cavanagh - May I explain? I did not realise at the time that the question would be put in that way. I thought it would have been put the other way. I will still honour my promise. I am not calling for a division.


The CHAIRMAN - I will commit the question again. The question is:

That clause 1 1 stand as printed.

Those of that opinion say 'aye', to the contrary no'. I think the ayes have it. Is a division required? Ring the bells. (The bells being rung)-


The CHAIRMAN - If I am given leave by the Committee I will call off the division. Is leave granted? Leave is granted. I will put the question again. We are dealing with clause 1 1. The question is:

That clause 1 1 stand as printed.

Those of that opinion say 'aye', to the contrary no'. I think the noes have it.

Clause negatived.
