Senator LUDLAM (Western Australia) (10:58): I have a question before I move the first of the set of Greens amendments: why did it take a year? I am not satisfied with the minister's explanation for why this is happening now; it is cutting diagonally across the work of the joint committee. I mentioned in my second reading contribution that the cybersafety committee produced its report on this matter almost exactly a year ago this week, and I wonder why it has taken a year for the bill to come before the chamber.
