Senator IAN MACDONALD (Queensland) (17:09): I will not take long. I will more or less simply seek leave to continue my remarks so that I can speak later on the Restoring Territory Rights (Assisted Suicide Legislation) Bill 2015. Suffice it to say that I have already been involved in this debate twice in this chamber in my long term here. I voted against the Andrews bill that has been mentioned. A lot of the experiences that the speakers I have heard today have related and the arguments they have put are arguments that I totally endorse and that I have actually used myself. So I want to associate myself with most of the remarks—not all of them—that have been made. I will perhaps have an opportunity to elaborate later, but at this stage I seek leave to continue my remarks later.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
