Senator LUDWIG (9:37 PM) —I promise not to go too much longer; my colleagues are encouraging me to be short. I am a bit late in relation to the Trade Practices Amendment (Liability for Recreational Services) Bill 2002 and I thank the Minister for Revenue and Assistant Treasurer for persevering with me. When you look at the New South Wales legislation, which seems to be the one that the minister has her fingers on, and this bill and you juxtapose them, does the federal bill take away any rights to sue in tort that a person would have in New South Wales as a New South Wales resident? Does that limit their tortious rights in any way?
