Senator PATRICK (South Australia) (17:00): I have seen in circumstances—for example, an FOI claim—where they might talk about a security classification; in fact, they use the term 'damage to national security', which is similar to terms used in this bill. You say that there's a clear distinction because of the way the provisions are limited to create a separation in the way we view damage to national security in an FOI situation versus, in this case, the sort of espionage and foreign interference situation.
