Senator CAMPBELL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for the Environment and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Sport, Territories and Local Government)(4.28 p.m.) —I am advised that the same sorts of rules that apply to a whole range of Commonwealth agencies in respect to giving advice would apply here.

There is no special consideration given in this act that would make it any different from others that legislate for all those other agencies.
