Whilst we appreciate the efforts of Senator Xenophon, it is really important for the people on the crossbench to understand that this is not a frivolous process we are following. It is an important point of principle; it is also a matter of integrity of communication and of having a full understanding of what is going on. We acknowledge the amendment, but we will not be supporting it.
