Mr McCLELLAND (2:20 PM) —My question is again to the Attorney-General. Attorney-General, is it the case that the relevant provisions of section 34C(3) in the ASIO Legislation Amendment (Terrorism) Act to which you have previously referred in your answer were in fact as drafted in the original bill and survived unchanged in the legislation negotiating process?

Mr RUDDOCK (Attorney-General) —I simply made the point, and I make the point again, that the legislation is clearly inadequate in relation to dealing with the issues that we require. I have asked for a review in relation to those matters. I pointed out where the legislation is presently defective.

The SPEAKER —I will deal with the member for Grayndler if he persists with his interjections.
