Mr Chairman, the opposition opposes item 2 in schedule 1 in the following terms:

(1) Schedule I, item 2, page 3 (lines 7 to 13), to be opposed.

The amendment will have the effect of splitting the bill and I understand the government agrees to the amendment. I have explained our arguments in the second reading stage of this bill and, as a consequence, I do not think we need to prolong discussion any further.
