Senator COONEY (9:51 AM) —The minister has said that it is important to pass this legislation because the members of the force have entitlements that they want to access. I think it is proper and right that they should be able to access them. The minister has painted a picture of the Federal Police, the agents, management and command, and I would like to know how far the government and the command are willing to allow the agents and the police themselves to have knowledge of what legislation and regulations are brought through in this place. Also, how far and to what extent are the command and government willing to have agents understand what is going on in the force itself?
