Senator POWELL(8.12) —The Australian Democrats do not support the amendment. The virtual re-writing of significant sections of the Bill, as the Minister says-I do not want to rehearse it-makes things more complex, more difficult and less flexible. In particular, we do not want to take from the legislation any flexibility that is in it. Therefore, we do not support the amendment.

Question put:

That the amendment (Senator Alston's) be agreed to.
