Senator CARR (Minister for Innovation, Industry, Science and Research) (12:50 PM) —The world is a bit more complicated a place than Senator Mason obviously appears to acknowledge. All I can do is draw his attention to 19-38. I have read out clause (1); let me go to clause (2):

(2)   If a higher education provider pays a person or organisation an amount paid to the provider as a *student services and amenities fee, the provider must make the payment on the condition that none of the payment is to be spent by the person or organisation to support:

(a)   a political party; or

(b)   the election of a person as a member of:

(i)   the legislature of the Commonwealth, a State or a Territory; or

(ii)   a local government body.

And so it goes on. Now that is a different question to whether or not people write letters to the editor for Farrago.
