Senator FAULKNER (Leader of the Opposition in the Senate) (9:30 PM) —No such distinction exists. I think I can say to Senator Nettle that, if she did not find such a distinction, that is because it does not exist. The minister could well be asked why the prescribed authority cannot also be the issuing authority. In the opposition's view there is absolutely no reason why that cannot be the case. I know of no substantive argument that can be mounted against it.
