Senator FARRELL (South AustraliaDeputy Leader of the Opposition in the Senate) (17:13): I seek leave to make a short statement.

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT ( Senator Fawcett ): Leave is granted for one minute.

Senator FARRELL: I want to make it very clear that the reports on BuzzFeed are completely inaccurate. The Labor Party is not opposing this bill. I went through all of the arguments in favour and against as part of my summary, and we've made it very clear that we want a full and proper investigation into the bill. We have proposed to do that, with the support of the Greens, through the JSCEM process. I would request, to the extent that it's possible, to get the record corrected by BuzzFeed and that they do so as quickly as possible.
