Senator NETTLE (9:16 PM) —I have a couple more questions for the minister. The first is this. Can the minister point out where, in the United States implementing legislation, the section allowing Australian Customs officers to search premises is. At the moment I am having a bit of difficulty finding where that is in the US implementing legislation. Could the minister also give an indication of how many Australian Customs officials will be based in the United States in order to fulfil this requirement. And I do not think I was out of the chamber whilst the minister gave any answers to questions about defining who the committee CEO referred to in this section is and to whom the CEO can give verification powers.
