Senator HARRIS (8:11 PM) —I agree with what Senator Hill is saying that, yes, in the normal sense of the procedure that indemnity should be there. The concern that I have is: if somebody is unduly nervous, is it because there is something in the free trade agreement that exposes those public servants? If that were the case then I, like the public servants, would be quite nervous. If Senator Hill tells us that there is nothing in the FTA that reverses any of the statutory immunity then, yes, it is an excess. I am not saying that you should take it out; I am just questioning why it is there. What is the necessity for putting it in there?

Question put:

That schedule 7, as amended, stand as printed.
