Senator MISSEN(11.04) —I appreciate what has been said. I have the same general feeling that one has to be quite certain that all loopholes are fixed up. I think that was partly brought to my attention in a detailed submission by the Proportional Representation Society of Australia which was incorporated in Hansard in my speech at the second reading stage. I believe it was excellent, helpful material. It pointed out what problems could arise. I hope that the solution Senator Macklin has found is a sound one. It seems to be so and I hope it will be acceptable.
