Senator CARRICK (New South Wales) - I move:

In sub-clause (4) leave out paragraph (e).

I said in my argument that clause 69 should be deleted and that it is too wide a function to give to the Commonwealth the powers of implementing treaties by regulation. This paragraph reads: external affairs, including the implementation of agreements between Australia and other countries;

The deletion of this paragraph in no way prevents the Government from implementing its treaties by other means. Therefore it is consistent with clause 69 being deleted that this paragraph be deleted.

Suggest corrections
