Australian universities have concluded a number of technology-sharing and innovation agreements that could be covered by the new law, notably with China, but also with India, Iran and Afghanistan. Even if the agreement is initially approved, the Minister of Foreign Affairs retains the power to revoke that authorization at a later date. According to government briefing documents, the legislation will give the power of general interest to denounce all private contracts and other agreements that are of the main agreement. Another Wednesday pleasure from Mr. Mutch! The upper half was a breeze, the lower section required a little more effort from the gray cells. 22a was my favorite just because I haven`t discovered the anagram in a long time! Oh, darling…. Thanks to Jay and 2K`s for checking.
The nicest part. I had to be on the right wavelength so much faster for me than an ordinary Jay. The Clues were so good that many came right away. Knew the word in 15a, but not the spelling so verified on Google. Similar 19d was supposed to be what it was, but I had forgotten this use of the word. Light reflection pause in SW and 25a and last 23d. The Morrison government will pursue new powers to prevent governments, regional and local governments and universities from entering into agreements with foreign governments that it considers detrimental to Australia`s foreign policy objectives.

The lobster let me make crustaceans, but the arachnid let me run screaming. Fortunately, I had played a bit of snooker in my youth, which allowed me to regain my serenity and finish this excellent puzzle before mowing the field this morning. Great indications from Mr.
Mutch, so many thanks to him. Another nice note from 2Ks thanks to them, especially for the lobster (St Mawes next week, so it`s probably on the menu with Oysters Crab and shellfish). Piccie at 9ac has taken some renovations. It was almost as enigmatic as the puzzle to me. Then I discovered the old aurbe and everything became clear. Have fun with the girls. I`m sure if you leave them alone, you`ll be fine. If the law passes through Parliament, governments and public universities must inform public assets of their existing agreements with foreign governments within six months of the legislation coming into force. Jay`s usual treat, but I thought it was harder than usual. Who knew there were so many meanings for the 19d? I knew it was true, but the “remains” deceived me. Fave? I dunno, too many possibilities, but 9a and 7d stood out.
Thanks to Jay and the 2Kiwis – imagine the fun and sneering with all these girls! Outside the track, Federer is not brilliant! 5d Location of the Army Officer After Eviction Tenant (4) LIEU: Delete the word “tenant” from a junior army officer. As usual, a great puzzle of Jay, for difficulty and for enjoyment. There were some hard clues to analyze, thanks to the two kiwis and good luck with the hordes of young.
