Senator GREENWOOD (Victoria) - I again raise a question with regard to the first part of clause 10 which states:

(   1 ) Subject to sub-section (3), a court shall not make an order under Part VI or Part VII for the maintenance, custody or guardianship of-

(a)   a child who, under the law of a State, is a ward of the State or a State child or is under the care and control of a Minister of State of the State; or

(b)   a child who has a similar status under a law of a Territory.

Why are such children- I gather there has been some increase, as I understand it, in the number of children who fall within these categoriesexcluded from the purview of a court which may wish to make an order under these provisions?
