Senator SPINDLER (12.04 p.m.) —I thank the minister for that offer; it is very welcome indeed. I reinforce the point that we are aware that this may well be the practice of the commissioner at this moment, but the point that we are making is that we should not rely on custom, which can be overturned by the next incumbent of that position. These matters should be anchored in legislation or in regulations. I look forward to the minister's future response to that.

  Amendments negatived.
