Once again, Senator Conroy is overtime, exactly like Labor did with the submarine program. They have no understanding of time limits and the need to get this project underway as soon as possible. We have already indicated our attitude in relation to Sweden, and it really does seem interesting, does it not, that any mention of Japan is met with howls of derision. Yet they seem to champion the cause of Sweden. One wonders why they have this approach of 'Japan bad; Sweden good.' I wonder what might motivate that sort of attitude. It does not reflect well on the Australian Labor Party. (Time expired)
