Senator SHERRY (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Primary Industries and Energy) (12.06 p.m.) —The suggestion put forward by Senator Kernot is a good one. I can give an undertaking on behalf of the government that if the committee examines this issue again and comes back to the government, I cannot say we will accept what it recommends, but we will certainly ensure that the matter is dealt with prior to 1 July next year which is before the tribunal commences operation. That will give the committee time to deal with the competing principles.

Senator Kernot —But we would like some more input from you.

Senator SHERRY —I am happy to give that assurance.
