Senator HARRIS (11:55 AM) —I thank the Minister for Justice and Customs for his answer. Just for clarity, I am asking the minister: among that group of things that the prescribed authority must do at the start when the person is first brought in, because there is no linkage between the paragraphs under proposed section 34E, is the prescribed authority required to inform that person of their rights under proposed subsection (3) at the initial stage? In other words, regarding a person who is taken in to be interviewed and who has the issues read to them relating to proposed subsection (1), are they informed of the information in proposed subsection (3) the first time they go in to be interviewed?
