Senator ABETZ (7:51 PM) —I do not want to delay this aspect too long but I specifically asked the minister what damage, what ambiguities et cetera might arise if it were included. I would like to think I and my coalition colleagues are reasonable. We have been invited to reconsider and we may reconsider but, quite frankly, we will only reconsider in circumstances where it can be shown that some very real damage might be occasioned. I do not think that case has been made out and in those circumstances the opposition will be persisting with the amendment.

Question agreed to.
