Senator XENOPHON (4:35 PM) —I seek leave to make a short statement.

Leave granted.

Senator XENOPHON —I know what the rules are. I think it is unfortunate that regulations which airline pilots have said compromise airline safety will now continue to be in force until the next day of sitting. The government knows very well what the will of the Senate is in relation to this, and I am very disappointed.

Senator Ludwig —I tried.

Senator XENOPHON —Senator Ludwig said he tried, but he did not have to call a division in relation to this. The numbers were very clear in relation to the will of the Senate. The government need to explain to airline pilots why they have had these very unfair and, many would say, unsafe regulations on cockpit security foisted on them.

Debate adjourned.
