The minister of course knows that that is a totally disingenuous comment, because my colleague Senator Milne made her question very clear. The question was: why did you believe that a sunset clause on a deterrence policy was okay six weeks ago but you do not believe it is okay now? It is totally illogical for you to have that opinion, unless of course your opinion has changed.

I ask, Chair, for the amendment to be put.

The CHAIRMAN: The question is that amendment (1) on revised sheet 7269, moved by Senator Hanson-Young, be agreed to.
