I would say on behalf of those I cited before who put that submission—and Senator Xenophon just cited—that they raised the question about whether SIOs can be declared retrospectively. I do not think it is something that we have canvassed in the debate thus far. Senator Brandis, I wonder whether you could clarify whether that is possible under the operation of the act.
