Senator CAMERON (New South Wales) (18:10): Minister, as you are aware, Labor has cooperated with the government in relation to this bill. However, I just want to place it on record that that cooperation has not been reciprocated by the government. A number of questions were placed on notice when the Senate committee was looking at this bill. We asked a number of questions on notice. I think the cut-off for that was five o'clock today. It would have been easy for Labor to delay the passage of this bill by not agreeing to the exemption from the cut-off. Have these responses been tabled today? If not, why not? And if they have not been tabled, why should we cooperate if we do not get reciprocal cooperation from the government?
