Senator IAN MACDONALD (4.49 p.m.) —Senator Panizza, who always has a big interest in local government because of his very distinguished service in local government in the past, understands this and supports the bill and I thank him for that contribution. He reminded me that I should have also indicated to the Senate that the amendments I proposed are totally supported by the Municipal Association of Victoria and by the Local Government Association of Queensland specifically, the states which this legislation specifically involves. Generally, I am informed that the Australian Local Government Association and other state peak bodies support the proposal as well.
