Senator HOGG (10:36 PM) —On the same matter but on a slightly different tack, in my speech in the second reading debate I raised an issue about the words `a particular woman' in clause 14. Minister, in addressing the issues raised by Senator Abetz, you might also advise whether, where it says `a particular woman', the `particular woman' is deemed to be the woman who is the owner of the egg in the first instance. The other issue that this raises is the issue of surrogacy. I did read in some of the submissions to the inquiry that the issue of surrogacy was not addressed. Is it addressed by the use of the word `particular' in the definitional area that Senator Abetz is outlining?
