Senator WONG (Minister for Climate Change and Water) (5:18 PM) —The government disagree with the legal opinion that Senator Brandis just gave us. I ask senators who care about actually ensuring the passage of this legislation whether they want to take a risk on the basis of Senator Brandis’s legal advice to the chamber. In relation to the self-managed superannuation funds, as I understood the amendment—and perhaps I misunderstood—schedule 4 of the amendment deals with the SI(S) Act, so that obviously extends beyond the Commonwealth superannuation funds sector. That was the basis of my indication previously.

Question put:

That the amendment (Senator Brandis’s) be agreed to.
