Senator MARK BISHOP (12:27 PM) —I want to thank Senator Evans for his strategic intervention. It is always good to work with professionals.


Senator Chris Evans —I'll be shot now!


Senator MARK BISHOP —I have just ended his career. We are all professionals! His advice was useful and I have taken it on board. Accordingly, I withdraw amendment (1), which is currently before the chair for discussion. I indicate an intent later in the committee proceedings to move a similar amendment to clauses 21 and 24, and other clauses if appropriate. I take on board, and will consider, the comments made by both Senator Stott Despoja and Senator Evans that the appropriate place for such a provision, if there is to be such a place, is not the objects clause but may be elsewhere in the bill.
