Senator ALLISON (12:23 PM) —by leave—I move Democrat amendments (1) and (2) on sheet 4434 together.

(1) Page 2 (after line 11), after clause 3, add:

4 Cessation of operation of Act

This Act ceases to operate at the expiration of four years after its commencement.

(2) Schedule 1, item 4, page 5 (lines 21 to 23), omit paragraph 74H(1)(j).

In doing this, I acknowledge that there is no support in the chamber for these amendments. However, I ask the minister, who says that he is guided by expert advice in these antiterrorist moves: what was the nature of the expert advice that led to the decision to put the pilots through ASIO checks and what was the general substance of it?
