Senator WRIGHT (South Australia) (13:18): I indicate that the Australian Greens strongly support this amendment from the opposition. As I said in my second reading contribution, the independence of tribunals across Australia is absolutely fundamental to respect for the rule of law. I think this amendment does enhance the independence and security of tenure of tribunal members for the length of their appointment. I commend the opposition for moving this amendment.
