Senator HARRIS (1:50 PM) —I put on record that One Nation will not support Labor's second reading amendment. Very briefly, the chamber will remember that in the debate on the Interactive Gambling Bill One Nation moved amendments that would have resolved the issue raised in paragraph (a)(i) of this amendment, in that we moved amendments for Australian based operations to be able to operate offshore and also for no offshore operations to be able to operate out of Australia or for Australian citizens to access them. Those two amendments moved by One Nation would have removed all of the problems that the Labor Party is professing now. Under paragraph (a)(vi) of the amendment, I disagree with the Labor Party in that the information I have is that it is technically feasible to achieve what the government is intending to do, and I note One Nation's opposition to the amendment.
