Senator BROWN (7:47 PM) —I would agree with that. I think, though, that if we had a little bit of extra time and this amendment went out to the states they too would be in agreement with it. It is an excellent amendment and it actually is totally in spirit with the COAG agreement, underlining the importance of transparency and public accountability. I think COAG would give a big tick to this amendment, and I think we should too.

Question negatived.
