Mrs BRONWYN BISHOP (Mackellar) (16:18): I note that the terminology used in all the clauses of the bill refers to judges but nowhere does the bill make it clear that we are talking only about federal judges. I would like to ask the minister just to confirm that this is not an attempt to cover the field, which I do not believe there would be power to do, but that this will leave state judges in a different situation to federal judges. I would just like confirmation of that.
