Senator ABETZ (Special Minister of State) (11:19 AM) —I note how very quickly, once I interjected, yet again, with the word `except'—the exception in the act—Senator Carr left the subject which we were debating to move on to something else. I welcome that and I accept that he now recognises that the state authority is the designated authority and has some very real role to play. In relation to the investigations with respect to the various colleges that he mentioned, I am prepared to take that on notice and see what detail can be provided. The bill does not deal with what are ongoing investigations, some of which are undoubtedly sensitive.
