National Security Legislation Amendment Bill (No. 1) 2014; In Committee
Can I just respond briefly to the Attorney's comments? I see a distinction in respect of these matters. They do not relate to the disclosure of the identity of an officer; they relate to broader matters. I can see Senator Brandis's point, but there is a distinction between the two—a distinction I have drawn and the reason I have moved this amendment. I am not proposing to divide over this amendment.
