Senator KEMP (Minister for the Arts and Sport) (6:26 PM) —We will be opposing the amendment. To pick up the point Senator Lundy made, I think it is worth noting that the bill already provides for a person who has suffered a loss or damage to receive compensation once a breach of the bill has been proven. Once the court has found that a contravention of the legislation has occurred, people may apply on their own behalf for compensation for damage they have suffered as a result of the contravention. In terms of spam that contains fraudulent, criminal or illegal content, there will be, of course, Senator Lundy, recourse under existing law. The amendment is, in our view, redundant and will not be supported.

Question negatived.
