Senator BROWN (8:03 PM) —Could I just counsel against any of us getting angry when we are discussing a matter of such importance and deep ethical import as this. I did not ask Senator Patterson which institutions are covered; I asked her which institutions are not covered. What I am pointing out is that we do not seem to have that much area of dispute, because everybody is saying that people with a conscience should not be penalised. What we are pointing out, and what Senator Harradine has been so good as to bring forward, is not just a guideline but some teeth to go with that guideline. That is the difference.
