Senator MARGETTS(5.01 p.m.) —I am not sure whether I made it clear before but I am making it clear now that I will be supporting the ALP's amendments. The reason is that we now see a movement towards removing some of that distinct conflict of interest. That surely is preferable if what you are trying to do is achieve those things which have been mentioned by the government and the Democrats today. I would like to think there is still some chance of support in the chamber for doing the things which all of us seem to indicate we should be doing.

   Question put:

   That the amendments (Senator Sherry's ) be agreed to.
