Senator BRANDIS (QueenslandDeputy Leader of the Government in the Senate, Vice-President of the Executive Council, Minister for Arts and Attorney-General) (20:33): I thought I might take the opportunity to point out to Senator Ludlam that, again, he has fallen into error. He does not understand this legislation. These provisions have nothing to do with the press. What these provisions have to do with are officers of ASIO who communicate intelligence information, which would be a grave breach of trust on their part. It has absolutely nothing to do with the press.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN ( Senator Bernardi ): I am going to divide these amendments into two separate questions. The first question is that amendments (6) and (7) on sheet 7574 be agreed to.

Question negatived.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN: The next question is that items 1, 10, 13 and 16 of schedule 6 stand as printed.

Question agreed to.
