Senator MARGETTS(11.16 a.m.) —The Greens (WA) and the Australian Greens will be supporting this amendment. From the point of view of Western Australia's having an entire airline route, whether it is Perth and Brisbane or Perth and Melbourne, with both airports, under the control of one lessee was not a very exciting prospect. As I have said before, I fail to see that a large private monopoly is going to be more efficient than a government monopoly. Therefore, I am happy to support this amendment, but of course I still do not like the bill as a whole.
