Can I just adopt what Senator Paterson has said and observe, in closing the debate, how ironic it is that several minutes ago the Australian Labor Party voted against amendment (1), which was an amendment to protect religious liberty. They propose now to vote against amendment (2), on the grounds of religious liberty.

The CHAIR: The question is that the amendment (2) on sheet 8333 revised, moved by Senator Brandis, be agreed to.

Progress reported.
