Senator McKIM (Tasmania) (18:39): Thank you for that answer. Perhaps I will phrase my question a little differently so that I move us out of the legal framework, which I accept that we are not operating in here. We are operating, should this legislation pass, in an administrative framework. To what extent would the minister need to be satisfied that the relevant conduct has occurred? Is there any precedent around this in administrative law? Can the minister establish his or her own measure around whether or not they are satisfied that the relevant conduct occurred?
