In answer to Senator Fierravanti-Wells—I am relating back to my earlier experience in agriculture, where there were many discussions over co-arrangements with New Zealand—it is my understanding that each of the respective authorities would be subject to and belong to their own governments in that respect, irrespective of any international arrangements that were made.

Question put:

That the amendments (Senator Barnett’s and Senator Humphries’) be agreed to.
