Senator ELLISON (Minister for Justice and Customs) (6:28 PM) —I move government amendment (5) on sheet QS296:

(5)    Schedule 1, item 66, page 18 (after line 27), at the end of section 23, add:

       (12)    In determining whether a direction covered by subsection (9) or (11) is in the interests of justice, the President must have regard to the objective of proceedings that are conducted in a manner that is fair, just, economical, informal and quick.

The arguments were canvassed in the debate on opposition amendment (2) and I suggest the amendment be put.

Question agreed to.
