I will take Senator Conroy's interjection about the right not to be vilified. In the government's view there is a right not to be vilified, but that right is not recognised in the Racial Discrimination Act, now. It was not recognised when the Labor government before last inserted these provisions into the Racial Discrimination Act in 1995 but that right, Senator Conroy, of which you speak—the right not to be vilified—will be recognised by these reforms.
