Senator TROETH (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) (5:00 PM) —I should indicate to Senator Harris that the current Secretary of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry Australia is Mr Michael Taylor. Secondly, with regard to his comment on that particular clause, the clause is standard in all Corporations Law companies, and I would advise Senator Harris to read further to where at the end of that section it says `unless the act or omission was in bad faith'. So there is a capacity for those officers to be prosecuted or moved against in a legal way, and that is standard practice for that particular way of interpreting things.
