Senator CARRICK (New South Wales) -I move:

At end of clause, add the following new sub-clause:

(2)   Land shall not be acquired by Australia for the purposes of this Part if it is land that is dedicated or reserved under a law of a State, without consent of the State, for purposes related to nature conservation or the protection of areas of historical, archaelogical or geological importance or of areas having special significance in relation to Aboriginals.

I simply say that the amendment expresses the view of co-operative federalism, it expresses the intentions that the Minister has stated in his second reading speech and I would hope, on behalf of the Opposition, that the Government would see fit to agree to it.
