Senator CHRIS EVANS (Western AustraliaMinister for Tertiary Education, Skills, Science and Research and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (17:46): As it is hypothetical, the answer is no—I cannot give you an example of what might occur in a practical sense. All I can do is tell you the advice I received. We are not going to support the amendments. We can continue to debate them, but we are not going to support them. I have endeavoured to get that advice, to accommodate Senator Ludlam if I could. The advice is that I should not. So I will not. And I cannot take it any further than that.
