I cannot give that undertaking here today. As Senator Chris Evans explained, there is a very complex and intricate set of work that is required to be done. There are a large number of pieces of legislation that have to be amended. I cannot give you an undertaking today that that will happen in the life of this current Senate, I am sorry.

Question put:

That the request (Senator Nettle’s) be agreed to.
