would achieve. I think the attorney has just outlined the details of the problem that the amendment would create. We accept that advice and will be opposing the amendment on that basis.

Amendment negatived.

Clause 151 agreed to.

Clauses 152 to 188, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

Clause 189.

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (6.49): I move amendment No 27 circulated in my name [see schedule 1 at page 4142].

Amendment agreed to.

Clause 189, as amended, agreed to.

Clauses 190 to 213, by leave, taken together and agreed to.

MRS DUNNE (Ginninderra) (6.51): I move amendment No 28 circulated in my name which inserts a new part 14A, including new clauses 213A to 213C [see schedule 1 at page 4142].
