Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaMinister for Communications, Minister for the Arts and Deputy Leader of the Government in the Senate) (21:17): In terms of the code, I, from recollection, wrote to each of the three peaks, ASTRA, Commercial Radio Australia and Free TV, and SBS indicating views on a number of subjects, some of which were in accord with what those particular industry associations thought and some which were contrary to what those particular industry associations thought.

In terms of the consultation process for the bill that is before us, my department consulted with ACMA, Free TV, SBS, ASTRA, Commercial Radio Australia, the Digital Industry Group Incorporated, the Coalition of Major Professional and Participation Sports, Responsible Wagering Australia, William Hill, Tabcorp, Optus Sport and the Advertising Standards Board on the proposed approach.
