Senator FAULKNER (Leader of the Opposition in the Senate) (11:30 AM) —It is a pleasure to speak, albeit briefly, to this legislation. It would be an even greater pleasure if I were able to give the sort of contribution on the Petroleum (Submerged Lands) Amendment Bill 2002 that will be forthcoming from Senator O'Brien, who will be speaking on behalf of the opposition. It is appropriate that this particular bill receives the exhaustive examination that will be forthcoming in the chamber. In order to see that occur, I give way to my colleague Senator O'Brien, whose erudite contribution, I am sure, is looked forward to by all.
