Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (09:33): by leave—I have just been consulting with a member of the Legal and Constitutional Affairs Committee, and it is my understanding that an email has been circulated to the committee members about a regular private meeting, if that is what we are talking about.

The PRESIDENT: I think the minister is saying that that might be okay for the committee, but the Senate does not understand that.

Senator SIEWERT: This is a regular practice now. This does not happen for all the other meetings. There have been dozens of these meetings since this process started, and it is only Legal and Cons that this happens with. I have not heard Senator Fifield ask about the other meetings that have come up for agreement in this place.
