Senator ELLISON (Minister for Justice and Customs) (6:20 PM) —I will clarify Senator Brown's question. If the Attorney intervenes and issues a certificate, the Attorney then becomes a party to the proceedings, as I understand it. Is the question: once the Attorney intervenes, can the court recanvass the issue under clause 31?

Senator Brown —Can the Attorney withdraw the certificate?

Senator ELLISON —Yes, he can.
