Senator COLLINS (Minister for Primary Industries and Energy) (12.02 p.m.) —Senator Watson has forgotten more about this subject than I will ever know. I do not have even the slightest intention of making up that defect. I will not attempt to respond in any detail to the remarks he made. I accept what he said in terms of the Treasurer (Mr Willis) in the way in which it was couched, which was a request. I will pass that suggestion on to the Treasurer for his consideration. I must say, though, that I thank Senator Watson for the commendatory remarks he made about Comsuper and the publications it has issued. I thank the opposition for its support of the legislation.

  Question resolved in the affirmative.

  Bill read a second time.

  The bill.
