Senator BRANDIS (QueenslandAttorney-General, Vice-President of the Executive Council and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (18:09): Can I indicate that the government will be supporting the Nick Xenophon Team's amendments. The Nick Xenophon Team's amendments do strengthen the legislation. We have no objection to that. Our opposition is to the weakening of the legislation that the Labor Party is trying to bring about. But, because of the effect of your amendment, Senator Kakoschke-Moore, and having regard to the considerations you and Senator Hinch referred to, we think this is a good proposal and we support it.
