Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate, Minister for Communications and Minister for the Arts) (21:05): The first point to make is that this is not a measurement bill. This is a bill about acting on the problem, which it does. The O'Farrell review indicated that losses are between the range of $64 million and $400 million.

Senator Xenophon, your propositions as to how to help achieve the most accurate figure are, of course, ones that are very welcome.
