Senator NETTLE (11:03 AM) —I thank the minister for outlining what happens if, in the implementation of this legislation, the process for warrants is breached—that it is listed as an offence under the act and there are penalties for it. Could the minister explain why, in relation to this amendment, which is about the procedural statement that shows the way in which the legislation will be implemented, if people breach the procedural statement should it not then be listed as an offence under the act rather than what we have currently, which is that a complaint can be made?
