Senator MACKLIN(10.59) — So it would be applicable to the first two non-sitting senators who come in immediately the new Parliament comes in? I am referring not to the people who come in in the new terms but to the first two non-sitting senators. Particularly, I am having difficulty as to whether this can even work after the next election. That is my worry.

Senator MACKLIN —I am talking in the context of an early election before halfway through next year, yes.
