Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - Mr Acting President,I seek leave to make a short statement.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Webster)- Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator Douglas McClelland (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for the Media) - When Senator Greenwood moved that a Committee of the Senate be formed to draw up reasons for the disagreement with the message of the House of Representatives I overlooked the fact that if that motion were carried the Australian Film Commission Bill would not be read a third time. I take this opportunity of indicating again, as I indicated during the Committee stage of the debate on the Bill, that the Government regards the Senate 's non-acceptance of the amendments as a failure to pass the measure.
