Senator SINODINOS (New South WalesMinister for Industry, Innovation and Science) (18:26): I rise to thank my fellow members on both sides of the chamber who participated in this debate. It is an important part of the country-of-origin labelling reforms championed by the government. I will not labour many of the issues which have been raised. I am aware that some senators have raised issues about going further. Senator Xenophon has raised certain issues. There have been issues in relation to seafood. But I do not intend to delay the Senate too much at this point, except to say that I will consider further some of the comments that have been made. This is a bit of a work in progress. But let's nail this and go on to the next stage. I commend the bill to the chamber.
