The DEPUTY PRESIDENT (15:22): Order! Please continue, Senator Farrell. I am calling order to my left.

Senator FARRELL: Thank you for that protection, Mr Deputy President. Switzerland is proposing a price between $30 and $60 a tonne. Norway is proposing a price of $53 a tonne. Ireland of course, one of those countries that is not doing particularly well in the current economic environment, is proposing a figure of $24 a tonne and moving to $37 a tonne. So any suggestion, I think, that the figure that the Australian government has selected for the price on carbon of $23 is out of the ballpark, is quite incorrect. (Time expired)
