Senator LUDWIG (Special Minister of State and Cabinet Secretary) (6:11 PM) —I will provide an explanation. As I understand, what occurred in relation to amendment (6) is that the agreement was that if you agree to the words that I read into the transcript then you could seek to amend your amendment (6) to adopt that wording. If you sought to do that, we would be in a position to agree to that amendment to the amendment, if that is the correct wording or phrase that I should be using. Then we would be able to proceed on that basis. If that reflects the undertakings that we have given, then we will honour them. If it also reflects the agreement to which we arrived at, then we will similarly honour that. But you can accept that I am flying a little blind here in respect of the matter.
