Senator NETTLE (11:26 AM) —I rise to give the position of the Australian Greens on this amendment. We will be supporting the opposition amendment, which seeks to ensure that this draconian piece of legislation does not apply to people under the age of 18. We will be supporting it on the premise that we do not believe that this legislation should apply to anyone, whether they are 18 or below or above, because of the arguments put forward previously. In the criminal justice system we already have the capacity to deal with all the issues that the government wants dealt with in this particular piece of legislation. On that basis we support the opposition amendment.
