Well, I don't want to look! That was a rude interruption, Senator Abetz, but I'll take it because I wasn't able to look down there to see who was actually in the chamber. But I have snuck a glance: perhaps Senator Siewert and Senator McKim could explain on behalf of the Greens political party what the downside is? There may not be an upside—perhaps I can accept that—but, if this element were introduced into the bill, how does that take backwards any principled belief or position any of them might have in relation to this particular single aspect?
