Senator CHERRY (10:27 PM) —I have not entered this debate very often, but I did ask a question of the minister about organisations that are not listed in the schedules which might subsequently be privatised by governments. Whilst it is hypothetical, given that we are making law into the future it is a reasonable question. In relation to publicly owned enterprises which may subsequently be privatised, does this agreement or the schedules that we are currently passing limit, in any way, shape or form, the capacity of the government to limit foreign ownership of future privatised bodies such as a future privatised Australia Post?
