Senator WHEELDON -There would need to be Australian participation of some sort. I am not quite sure what the word 'co-operation' means in this sense, but it certainly does not mean that it has to be an Australian Government instrumentality or the Australian Government itself. It could be a private entrepreneur in co-operation with the Australian Government. We believe that if there is to be rnining in areas where there is a national park, and clearly a national asset is in some way being interfered with by the mining operations, it is appropriate in those circumstances that the Australian Government should at least be acting in co-operation with whoever is carrying on that mining. For that reason we do not propose to accept the amendment which has been moved by Senator Durack.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 11 to 18- by leave- taken together, and agreed to.
