Senator McKIM (Tasmania) (10:23): I do agree with that, Attorney, and I am pleased that there have been no cases where a control order has been applied for and denied by the courts. I have another series of questions. Firstly, this relates to schedule 2. I observe that the maximum time that a child may be subject to a control order is three months, but of course there is the opportunity for further control orders to be applied for. Could you confirm that, in assessing any application for further control orders, the courts will have to give consideration to exactly the same matters that they would if the application had been a new application for a control order on a particular person?
