Senator ELLISON (Special Minister of State) (11:26 AM) —I point to section 51F, which states:

... the Chief of Defence Force must, as far as is reasonably practical, ensure that:

... ... ...

(b) the Defence Force is not utilised for any particular task unless a member of the police force of the State or the Territory specified in the order requests, in writing, that the Defence Force be so utilised.

That is actually a request for the task to be carried out by the police.
