Senator JACINTA COLLINS (Victoria) (19:25): I am not sure if I am cutting across Senator Leyonhjelm here. Unfortunately, I was distracted for a moment. I wanted to indicate for the committee's benefit that at the start of the committee stage consideration I indicated we would not be proceeding with the amendment we circulated which expressed our concern that a definition of 'torture' needed to be dealt with. My understanding, and unfortunately my adviser is not here at the moment, was that the government would be addressing that matter in a supplementary explanatory memorandum. Would Senator Brandis care to comment on that?
