Senator BRANDIS (QueenslandAttorney-General, Vice-President of the Executive Council and Leader of the Government in the Senate) (10:26): That is not in the bill itself, but I am told that that principle will be one of the principles observed by those administering the act. Can I also remind you, Senator, that that is to be set out against the background of the existing requirement in the Criminal Code that the terms of a control order are only to be issued to the extent to which they are necessary to satisfy the security matter—these are not the statutory words; this is my paraphrase of them—but are to be as non-invasive as possible, depending upon the circumstances of the case. So, in relation to a minor, it is the position of the police that enabling a minor to continue with his or her school education is one thing that would be required to be satisfied in seeking the terms of the control order. But you are right to say, I am advised, that it is not in the bill.
