Senator WONG (Minister for Climate Change and Water) (5:40 PM) —No, Senator. I indicated to you that there was no definition included in relation to the provision to which you referred. What I have said to you is that, at common law, courts would have applied a range of factors, and I am advised that the sorts of factors that would be applied would include the factors which are included in the definition under the Acts Interpretation Act, to which I have referred you.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Barnett)—The question is that government request for amendment (3) on sheet QH400 be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
