Senator STEELE HALL (South AustraliaLeader of the Liberal Movement) - I understand Senator Carrick 's concern about the width of this paragraph but I also believe that there needs to be pretty wide expression in this area. Whilst he used the term 'high seas' we can also consider small coves, limited reefs and secluded areas which must be protected from overuse by rapidly expanding recreational forcesboats, for instance. I think it is impossible to limit this to what we probably would all like to see because there are so many things not specified and unknown at the moment but which will have to be met by this paragraph. I do not object to the sentiments expressed by Senator Carrick but I think that the Minister will need this power in his administration.
