Senator SPINDLER (8.54 p.m.) —I confirm that, as a consequence of government amendment No. 14 being agreed to, I will not be proceeding with Democrat amendment No. 29. I move:

30.Clause 4, page 32, proposed section 3ZV, line 26, omit "including", substitute "excluding".

This amendment is necessary to ensure that we do not extend the use of state identification laws to a particular class of forensic sampling—non-intimate identification material. The Commonwealth bill does not lay down procedures for any intimate forensic sampling. In an effort to bridge this gap the bill expressly preserves all state and territory laws relating to the taking of all forensic sampling including the non-intimate identification material for which the Commonwealth bill lays down provisions. This amendment is designed to rectify that position.
