Senator ABETZ (Special Minister of State) (11:13 AM) —I thank Senator Carr for his question. I think I can now understand where his confusion has arisen with regard to his earlier interjection. Whilst the situation is that this act does have that provision in it, the people who undertake the test on behalf of the Commonwealth are in fact the state education personnel on whom we rely. If they are not undertaking that properly, then once again we might have a problem that we need to address and, clearly, that is something we would need to address with state departmental officials who undertake the test.
