Senator HARRIS (8:01 PM) —In response to the minister, there is in no way any assertion in relation to the minister's moral standing or her support or lack of support for the conscientious objector. In objecting to Senator Harradine's amendment or indicating that she will vote against it, the minister was clearly asked to indicate to the chamber how a person at law can seek remedy in relation to the guidelines. The minister has read out the guidelines, and I thank her for that. It is one thing to know what the guidelines are, but how does the person who will eventually look at the debate on this piece of legislation know how they can implement their rights? The minister is saying she upholds their right to conscientiously object; we are asking the minister to clearly let us know how they do that.
