Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (21:18): What I want to ask a question about is this. How are we going to ensure that DHS will ensure—sorry, not 'we' collectively—that, particularly—

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Leyonhjelm ): Order, Senator Siewert. Could senators who want to have conversations please move outside. I'm having trouble hearing Senator Siewert, and I'm sure others who want to hear what she's saying are also having trouble.

Senator SIEWERT: Yes, it is impacting on my ability to think straight. Sorry, and thank you for that. Okay, there's the first process of the three points, and then we've got, as you get to the fourth point, a demerit point and then five, six and seven. By and large, as I understand the legislation, the employment provider will be dealing with the first three points and the application of that. What I'm keen to know, because there'll be little involvement of DHS before that, is: how are we ensuring that there is consistency across how those points are provided?
