Senator GREENWOOD - I direct my question to the Attorney-General. I refer him to the continued presence in the parks opposite Parliament House of the tents and other structures contrary to law and to his answer yesterday when he said he has not seen any cause to take action on the matter. I ask: Will he take action if other persons and groups of persons or organisations move onto the site and erect and occupy tents, caravans, cars, trucks and other structures? If he will not take action, will he take steps to ensure that the appropriate toilet blocks and ablution blocks are put in place so that the health of the community can be protected?

Senator MURPHY - It is a wise practice, and the rules on the Notice of Question form state, that one should not answer hypothetical questions. I propose to follow that course in this case.
