Senator NETTLE (9:45 PM) —When the minister describes this legislation as being unworkable, what is his premise for that view? Could he describe for the chamber whether the primary premise for his argument that this legislation is unworkable is that there will not be enough retired judges to enact that section of the legislation? It is important for the chamber to know that. It is of great concern if the minister believes this legislation will be used to such an extent that the model being put forward will be unworkable because there simply will not be enough retired judges throughout the country to deal with that level of usage.
