Senator McKIM (Tasmania) (10:55): You do presumably acknowledge, Minister, that that's not a view shared by other legal experts who have offered comment on this legislation? I think my colleague Senator Rhiannon is, if given the call, going to ask a question about Professor George Williams's publicly expressed views on this legislation. I believe Senator Rhiannon may ask whether you're aware of those views. But I want to ask whether you, or any of your departmental officials, are aware of any other views that have been publicly expressed by constitutional experts, including by Ms Kate Eastman SC. If you are aware, do you agree or disagree? If you disagree, could you place on the record, please, the reasons for that disagreement?
