Senator LUDLAM (Western Australia) (10:47): Likewise the Australian Greens believe these amendments are being provided by way of consistency, so we will not be opposing them. I did have some general questions on the bill, but the minister got the jump on me, as is his right, so I wonder whether it might be possible to put a couple of questions of a general nature before we start chipping our way through the amendments. I have indicated that the Greens will be supporting this batch of amendments that the government has moved, before we move to the Greens amendments.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN ( Senator Crossin ): Senator Ludlam, if these are technical amendments and everyone is in agreement, we will put them and then I will allow you to ask your general questions. So I put that amendments (1) and (3) to (6) on sheet BL210 be agreed to.

Question agreed to.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN: In respect of amendment (2) on sheet BL210, I put that items 6 and 7 of schedule 1 stand as printed.

Question agreed to.
