Senator JACK EVANS(4.42) —I am sorry Senator Watson came in at this stage in the debate. If he had heard my contribution to the second reading debate, which I am sure the Committee would not want me to repeat, he would understand the rationale for the decision I have made and expressed on behalf of the Australian Democrats. I invite Senator Watson to read my speech. He will then understand the full reasoning behind the Democrats' decision not to support this amendment.
