Senator MURPHY (12:29 PM) —I know I have taken up too much of the chamber's time, but I am still concerned. I might be happy were Democrat amendment (1) to say that the commission `must make its assessments under subsections 7(2) and (3) available to the public'. As Senator Allison pointed out to me—and I am sorry I missed it—proposed section 7(2)(h)(iii) says:

... to advise and make recommendations to COAG on actions that the parties might take to better achieve those objectives and outcomes ...

Why couldn't we put the words `assessments and recommendations' under those two subclauses?
