Senator Sir JOHN CARRICK(7.05) —Since the Attorney-General says that he expects that the random system will be the appropriate one, will he therefore consider the Government adopting an addendum to the effect that the order of the ticket on the poster shall be determined by random ballot?

Senator Gareth Evans —Yes, in an order determined by lot. We can add those words at the end.

Senator Sir JOHN CARRICK —Whatever words the Minister chooses.

Senator Gareth Evans —There is no difficulty about that. I have consulted the technical committee scattered around the chamber, as it is, and we are in no difficulty in accommodating that suggestion.
