Senator XENOPHON (South Australia) (17:35): Just very briefly: I would be mortified if there were any suggestion that the drafting by the officers of the Senate, who do a fantastic job, was anything other than impeccable. It was only if there were some unintended consequence. It is not a reflection on the drafting, but that is a policy issue that has arisen. I think the minister wants me to sit down and shut up, but I just want to say that the drafting is impeccable. It's a question of whether there were any additional matters that might be dealt with from a policy point of view.

The TEMPORARY CHAIR ( Senator Marshall ): The question is that amendments (21), (24) to (27) and (35) on sheet 8144, moved by Senator Cameron, be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
