Senator WONG (South AustraliaLeader of the Opposition in the Senate) (12:21): Just to indicate, Chair, Labor will be supporting these technical amendments as set out in 8334. The amendments ensure that the bill as proposed meshes appropriately and properly with existing Commonwealth legislation. They're essentially modifications to the drafting of the bill, designed to ensure it will best achieve the purpose, consistent with the bill and the Senate committee report. We've considered the amendments. We thank the Attorney-General for providing them to us. We consider that these amendments make appropriate drafting changes and we'll be supporting all of the amendments on 8334.

The CHAIR: Just to confirm, Senator Wong, you are saying that you're agreeing to those amendments on sheet 8334 revised?

Senator WONG: Correct.

The CHAIR: Thank you.
