Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (21:02): Thank you. That takes me to the broader question around the rules. In answer to one of my questions in estimates—and I also would like to take the opportunity to thank the department for getting the answers back in estimates very quickly; I really appreciate it—when I was asking about the various instruments and rules, I want to seek some clarification now about some of the timing. My understanding from your answer is that the instruments that establish the framework and the direct personal response framework cannot be tabled in parliament until after the bill. I understand that we can't see the instruments until after the bill has passed. Can I ask where the process is up to in finalising those instruments?
