I have nothing further to add on the matter, given that, I understand, there are a number of other events on this evening and senators may well have an interest in those. I disagree with the position the minister has outlined. The Scrutiny of Bills Committee highlighted a problem here. There ought to be effective penalties imposed by this, and I do not think the current regime allows that.
