On behalf of the Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances, I give notice that, at the giving of notices on the next day of sitting, I shall withdraw business of the Senate notice of motion No. 1 standing in my name for 11 sitting days after today for the disallowance of corresponding state law.

The notice of motion read as follows:

That the Declaration of ‘corresponding State laws’ under subsection 7(1) of the Research Involving Human Embryos Act 2002 be disallowed [F2013L02043].

Twelve sitting days remain, including today, to resolve the motion or the instrument will be deemed to have been disallowed.

I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.

On 19 March 2014 the Standing Committee on Regulations and Ordinances gave notice to disallow this instrument whilst it sought further information on the delay in registering this instrument. The committee has received a satisfactory response from the Minister for Health. The committee's concluding remarks were documented in Delegated Legislation Monitor No. 4 of 2014. Accordingly, the committee seeks to withdraw the notice of motion to disallow this instrument.
