Senator FIFIELD (Deputy Manager of Opposition Business in the Senate) (6:45 PM) —I thank the minister for offering a briefing and I want to indicate that if this amendment had been circulated in good time or a briefing had been provided previously then we could have avoided this situation. If the opposition were seeking to cause difficulty here then we would have said that we would oppose and divide on the amendment until such time as a briefing was provided. We are not doing that. So, Minister, thank you for the offer of a briefing and we look forward to that tomorrow.
