Senator CROWLEY (Minister for Family Services) (11.35 a.m.) —Just one last point: I think Senator Chamarette asked a second question earlier, and I beg her pardon for not picking it up. I refer to her second question about whether or not a penalty of community service could be set. I am advised that that could well be the case. It would be at the court's discretion. The court does have wide discretion to introduce that as an optional penalty.
