Senator PATRICK (South Australia) (17:36): I believe that some of the drive behind this legislation comes from our allies and friends who share similar experiences and share concerns with us. You'll be aware that the United States, for example, has a congressional oversight of the intelligence services. Canada does as well, and so does the UK. Did we seek advice from any of those agencies in the development of this particular piece of legislation as it went through its drafting in respect of what they have done versus what we might or should do in relation to the bill?
