Senator CONROY (9:10 PM) —I indicate for the record that the Victorian government, which has escaped the mention of the minister so far—and I am glad she raised the issue of complementarity—does not support the Trade Practices Amendment (Liability for Recreational Services) Bill 2002 in its current form and would welcome the amendments that are being moved today. I think it is important, while Senator Coonan likes to quote Premier Carr and the concerns of the New South Wales government, that it be put on the record that the Victorian government does not believe that this bill sits well with the stated intent of the communique in terms of waiving inherent risk, and that it actually goes further. The Ipp report made it clear that this bill goes further than waiving inherent risk. I would be interested in the minister's views on the Ipp report's comments on the bill, and I thought it was important to put that on the record.
