Senator PETER BAUME(9.25) —The Opposition supports the amendment which has been moved by the Australian Democrats. We believe, for the reasons set out by Senator Chipp, that it is a suitable amendment. As we have made clear, we would prefer a different relationship between Telecom and Aussat.


Senator Chipp —So would we.


Senator PETER BAUME —So would the Australian Democrats, but given the situation we face this amendment seems to have merit and it will have the support of the Opposition.
