For the reasons that Senator Xenophon has outlined I also support this amendment. I understand that there will not be a division but I want my support in Hansard. The general point is that ASIO is there to solve the public interest. The public interest test in the legislation does no harm; it just reminds the relevant authorities of who they are working for.
