Senator GARETH EVANS (Minister for Foreign Affairs) (11.52 p.m.) —I think the criticism that others are advancing is that the clause is so wide that it will in fact enable the rollover of all sorts of interests, including leases, in respect of which there is no explicit provision legally for their renewal. Far from that being the concern, the concern that I am hearing more often is that the clause is too wide in its reach. I am sorry, I do not think that reading is correct. I do not think there is any such limitation.
