I have a couple of questions for the minister to clarify something that has come up in discussion. Can we be advised that, in states and territories where sex offender registries capture offences other than just child sex offences—the registries only list people as 'sex offenders', without definition—the bill will impact only on people who have a child sex offending history and not everyone caught up in the various laws?
