Senator FARRELL (South Australia) (11:44): Labor will support the government's amendments and, in particular, we welcome the government listening to Labor's suggestions that parties should be required to keep separate state and federal campaign accounts. Several state jurisdictions already require that separate state campaign accounts be maintained. Separate federal accounts will provide an additional layer of transparency and accountability to ensure that the actors in the electoral process cannot use the Commonwealth Electoral Act to circumvent state electoral laws.
