Senator PATRICK (South Australia) (18:43): I also wish to respond to the minister and say that at the second reading stage I moved a motion to have these amendments referred to the PJCIS. It would have been a great opportunity for the government and the opposition, who are members of that committee, to actually have a close look at this. I don't understand why that suggestion didn't get your support. I also wish to put on the record that I find your remarks a little bit confusing in the context that an opportunity to refer these amendments for proper scrutiny was there and was not taken.
