Senator McKIM (Tasmania) (16:30): Minister, I'll try again on the matter I was asking about before question time. I was asking you about an organisation—and I used Markets for Change as an example, which attempts to—actually, I'll withdraw that. I'll just use a hypothetical organisation that is based in Australia and travels overseas with the express intention of trying to persuade overseas markets not to purchase products produced in Australia. My understanding, or my recollection, is that, when I put that to you before question time, you said that that organisation would not be caught by this legislation. I wonder if you could step me through the reasons that you believe that such an organisation conducting those activities would not be caught by this legislation and be subject, potentially, to charges of sabotage or any other charge under this legislation.
