Commonwealth Electoral Amendment Bill 2016; In Committee
I apologise to the chamber for prolonging this. I mentioned Mr Rogers's evidence. I am not one for beating around the bush. If you do not agree with Mr Rogers's evidence, please say so and then I will pursue the amendment. Mr Rogers said it was not an offence. I have heard the eight or nine similar answers, Minister. If you do not agree with him, that is fine. There is no law against disagreeing with the commissioner, but if that is the government's view then please say so.
