Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaMinister for Communications, Minister for the Arts and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate) (21:15): The government outlined the broad parameters of the gambling advertising restrictions when we announced the media reform package just before the May budget. So those parameters were outlined and clear. The nature of the ACMA code process is that the relevant organisations—in this case the broadcasters—prepare a draft code. That code is provided to ACMA. There's a period of public consultation before the code is provided to ACMA and then ACMA need to be satisfied that the code is in accordance with the act and also that the organisations concerned have undertaken appropriate public consultation.
