Senator HILL (Minister for Defence) (11:06 PM) —I am still working on the previous question, but I draw your attention to article 14.7.6 at the top of page 14-6, under the competition part of the agreement, where it says:

The Parties shall work together to examine the scope for establishing greater bilateral recognition of foreign judgments of their respective judicial authorities obtained for the benefit of consumers, investors, or customers who have suffered economic harm as a result of being deceived, defrauded, or misled; and shall report on the feasibility and appropriateness of, and progress toward, greater recognition of such foreign judgments at the first meeting of the Joint Committee.

We think that that is the only reference to the subject matter within the agreement.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator McLucas)—The question is that Democrat amendment (3) on sheet 4361 be agreed to.

Question negatived.
