Senator ABETZ (10:36 PM) —I would request that we not deal with the right-of-entry provisions this evening. Madam Temporary Chair, you will see there are a number of provisions there, and there is the suggestion that some conflict with others. Rather than getting into that tangled mess, we—and when I say ‘we’ I mean the opposition and, I think, Senator Ludwig, Senator Siewert and Senator Xenophon, and I did not get around to Senator Fielding—were of the view it would be better that we not deal with them now. Therefore I would suggest, if he is agreeable, that Senator Ludwig move government amendments (1), (3) and (5) to (9) on sheet QC300 and we leave the right-of-entry provisions at this stage.
