Senator COTTON (New South Wales) - I just have one very simple question to ask. I am indebted to the Minister for Primary Industry for the comments that he has made because I am aware also of the footnote made by Sir John Crawford to which the Minister referred. I think that what the Minister said has helped to clear up the matter. But the Minister has not told us what the purpose of the Government is in introducing, by way of amendment, paragraph 22 (aa) to be inserted after paragraph (a). Can the Minister give us an explanation of the policy intent behind this amendment as the amendment is in addition to some of the expressions contained in the Crawford report. Perhaps the Minister's advisers might be able to inform him.
