Senator SESELJA (Australian Capital TerritoryAssistant Minister for Science, Jobs and Innovation) (17:37): We consulted with allies about their criminal laws, and that's what we're dealing with here. In relation to this bill, and the extent to which we consulted, obviously we talked to our allies about what kinds of laws they have in place to deter this kind of activity. That's an important discussion to have. But what we're dealing with here are changes to the criminal law in relation to certain types of foreign interference and espionage et cetera.
