Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (21:19): I will just go back to the issue of the new burden of proof. It will be a balance of probabilities rather than beyond reasonable doubt, and it will be dealt with by ACMA. Given that there could well be a flood of complaints if it seems that there is more of a prospect that there will be action taken, what additional resources are being provided to ACMA to deal with what could be a significant number of complaints? If there is an actual flood of complaints, given the number of people who are hurt by these illegal offshore gambling sites, will the government undertake to make sure that these matters are dealt with and that complaints are not abandoned by virtue of a lack of resources on the part of ACMA?
