Senator CANAVAN (QueenslandNationals Whip in the Senate) (12:16): I seek some clarification of Senator Xenophon's amendment. My understanding is that this committee would have five members. If you were to add one member to the government's side, that paragraph of the motion would then be internally inconsistent.

The DEPUTY PRESIDENT: Exactly. This is the problem which I pointed out. I am taking it that Senator Xenophon's amendment actually increases the total number on the committee.
