I am just taking as much advice as I can on your many questions, Senator Xenophon. I am told that our advice is that in no way does anything we have done breach the Racial Discrimin­ation Act. We are supporting the Greens' amendment, which I think addresses many of your concerns, and we are still in the process of some ongoing consultations about some other issues. I think the Greens' amendment deals with many of your concerns, and we are very supportive of that.

Question put:

That the amendments (Senator Cormann's) be agreed to.

The committee divided. [11:17]

(The Chairman—Senator Parry)

Question negatived.
