I thank the minister for that clarification. I thought he had used ‘and’ in his comment. I do understand the intent of the amendment—that is not the issue. I am just wondering if down the track it can be interpreted in a different way—in a way that does have a cumulative effect. Obviously, the government is satisfied with the drafting and the effect of the amendment in its current form. But I still think that the fact that we have puzzled over it since yesterday evening probably indicates it is not as clear as perhaps would have been hoped.
