Amendment negatived.

Clause 14.

MR WOOD (Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Arts and Heritage, and Acting Minister for Health) (5.43): Mr Speaker, I move amendment No 2 circulated in my name [see schedule 2 at page 3380].

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 21, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 22 to 29, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Schedule 1.

MR WOOD (Minister for Disability, Housing and Community Services, Minister for Urban Services, Minister for Police and Emergency Services, Minister for Arts and Heritage, and Acting Minister for Health) (5.45): I move amendment No 4, Mr Speaker, circulated in my name [see schedule 2 at page 3380].
