Senator CARRICK (New South Wales) - I think there are other reasons as well. One of my colleagues pointed out by private interjection that conceivably this paragraph could forbid the passage of vessels through the Great Barrier Reef. I do not mean in regard to commercial purposes but if the Reef were a great national park. There seem to be a variety of difficulties associated with this paragraph and I want to make one thing clear. I acknowledge Senator Hall's point. We are not being vexatious; we are really asking that this paragraph be sent back to the drawing board. We hope it will come back with the various modifications. If there were a way of modifying it here we would do so in good faith but we can see no way of doing so.
