I move amendment No. 23:

In page 11, line 30, to delete "Government" and substitute "State".

These are technical drafting amendments advised by parliamentary counsel. While references to "Departments of Government" and "Departments of State" are to be found in various statutes, parliamentary counsel's preference is for "Departments of State" to be used. It is the modern usage.
