My question is to the Attorney-General, Senator Brandis. I refer to the Attorney-General's decision to weaken the Racial Discrimination Act. Can the Attorney-General confirm that representatives of the Institute of Public Affairs provided a briefing to coalition members prior to the Attorney-General's announcement yesterday? And can the Attorney-General also confirm that the IPA gave the government's draft legislation a glowing review, while the Prime Minister is yet to name a single ethnic or community organisation which supports it?
