Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (13:55): I'll indicate that the Greens are not supportive of this amendment, because we don't think anything can make this trial better. With all due respect to Senator Storer, I think he's been sold a pup. There is no evidence from the ANAO report that this process has reduced social harm. We cannot support causing more distress to more people in Hinkler and the Goldfields and continuing that distress in Ceduna and East Kimberly. I was about to use a pretty poor analogy, but I won't. You just can't make this nonsense better. We can't support this, because you can't make it better. We won't be supporting the amendments.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Sterle ): Senator Storer, did you wish to add anything before I put the question?

Senator Storer: No.
