This amendment would add a specific prohibition against torture. For reasons that have been thoroughly canvassed in the debate on the previous amendment, the government does not support the amendment. The same issue arises in relation to this amendment as arose in relation to the last amendment, and I will not repeat what I had to say in those remarks.
