Senator IAN MACDONALD (12.38 p.m.) —I know that this is simply a factional deal the Labor Party and its fourth faction are dealing with, but can I have an assurance that these little amendments that have been arranged between the factions have been referred to the relevant shadow minister? I am not that person; it is a member in the other house. Can I be assured that they have been referred and that they are accepted? We were intending to agree to Senator Coulter's original amendment No. 5, but I have no instructions on the last bit. I seek some assurance that the shadow minister has approved it.
