Senator ELLISON (Minister for Justice and Customs) (3:00 PM) —Senator Nettle asked me a question about our arrangements with the Netherlands. I can confirm I have advice from the Attorney-General, who has indicated that we have had discussions with the government of the Netherlands in relation to the enforcement of Australian orders in that country. The Attorney-General has indicated that if the current situation is not able to meet requirements then he would look at the benefit of a treaty but, at the moment, we are still ascertaining the legal position with authorities in the Netherlands.
