Senator SESELJA (Australian Capital TerritoryAssistant Minister for Science, Jobs and Innovation) (13:46): Senator Rhiannon, again, with respect, it is in the bill; it is in the definitions. Asking me questions about things that have been there for six months and are clearly defined is simply going over old ground. But, for your benefit, the definitions have been there for months. It says:

damage to public infrastructure: conduct results in damage to public infrastructure if any of the following paragraphs apply ...

It goes into some detail. You're welcome to read that. It's been on the public record for some time. Each of those terms is defined. I read out to you the definition of 'public infrastructure', which doesn't include mines, but, in terms of damage, it is defined. In terms of 'public infrastructure', it is defined. The legislation sets all of those things out very, very clearly.
