Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (21:30): Do I take it from those comments that this is going to be done by state? Will it be state legislation or Commonwealth legislation? I am not sure whether it will be a combination of state and Commonwealth legislation. If it is going to be a combination of state and Commonwealth legislation, does the government concede that it clearly has the constitutional power, using corporations power, external affairs powers or banking and telecommunications powers to regulate this at a Commonwealth level, effectively, rather than what could be a lowest common denominator with the approach that we are now seeing?
