Senator WHISH-WILSON (Tasmania) (20:39): I mentioned earlier in my contribution that we hope that the next step will be looking at Foreign Investment Review Board thresholds and triggers for water holdings, and part of that of course will be a discussion about what should be in the national interest. I mentioned earlier that the Greens went into the last election with a clear policy on what we believe should be in the national interest. Climate change considerations were, of course, first and foremost in our thinking there. We agree in principle to the amendments that Senator Xenophon has moved, but it is going to take a lot more work. We would like to see this develop, but we will not be voting for the amendments tonight.
