We oppose the amendment, as I think the Democrats would expect. It is a matter that the committee report said should be the subject of further review. I have said that before—I am not sure whether that was yesterday or the day before in this debate. Labor agrees that this area should in fact be looked at. I do not know the reasons for it. That in itself is not sufficient for a review, but the committee indicated that there were areas that did require a look at. On that basis, it should be looked at. The government could indicate more broadly that this area will in fact be looked at as well.
