Telecommunications (Interception) Amendment Bill 2006
I am happy for it to be co-sponsored. It can be circulated in the chamber now, if the government wants. But what I am foreshadowing is that we can deal with it in a compact way: we can have a division on the B-party warrants, then I can move that amendment to delete schedule 2 and we can have a one-minute division. That way there will not be two long divisions. Obviously, the government is not going to accede to the proposed improvements to the B-party regime, but I do not want to take up a significant portion of the Senate’s time.
