Senator IAN CAMPBELL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Treasurer) (5:10 PM) —I am not sure that I should speak on this because I have a vested interest in that I enjoy cognac. But Senator Murray has reminded me that I am paying too much for it, so I will have to go to work on these Treasury bods and see if we can fix it.

Senator Murray —In my somewhat disreputable life, I have had an experience of cognacs and brandies, and I can assure you that a St Agnes 42-year-old is as good as any cognac you will get.

Senator Ian Campbell —The minute the third reading is passed I will pop up to your office and test it out.

Question negatived.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN — Senator Murray, are you proceeding with amendment (1)?
