Senator GARETH EVANS (Attorney-General)(11.30) —If English language means anything, they all have to vote unanimously in favour because what it says is 'being a resolution in favour of which all the members of the Committee present at the meeting have voted'. I honestly cannot see how it can be changed in any way to produce a different result. We could put the words 'in favour' at the end of the sentence if it is thought that there is some ambiguity, but on reflection I find that difficult to contemplate.
