Senator GUILFOYLE (Victoria) - I move:

Omit sub-clauses (2) and (3).

This clause requires the Commission to keep itself informed as the the film industry and we believe that sub-clause ( 1 ) satisfactorily covers the requirements to perform that function. The requirements in sub-clauses (2) and (3) are very wide indeed and we feel that they are undesirable. Sub-clause (2) contains the requirements that any person with a notice served on him either personally or by post is required to supply within a period specified any information in his possession relating to the matter specified in the notice. We feel that this is an infringement of a person's rights in the community when he is required to supply such information by the issue of a notice. It seems unnecessary to have detailed specifications of this type in the Bill. We feel that for the purpose of performing its functions, subclause ( 1 ) is adequate.

Suggest corrections
