Senator WHISH-WILSON (Tasmania) (18:12): I would like to have been at the JSCOT briefing yesterday—I might not be asking these questions if I had been—but, unfortunately, I was away on other business. The Greens certainly like the concept of what is being proposed here, but it seems as though there is blind faith here—that we are suspending belief and saying we assume it is all going to be fine. It would be very good to have further guidance on a number of issues. Can you give us an idea of whether the immunity provisions relate to, for example, the conduct of employees in relation to bribery? And how are standards in the bank set if no individual country can pursue action against, for example, individual employees who might be acting in a corrupt way?
