Madam Chair, I think in the interests of progressing this debate and getting on with what we are required to do, Senator Hinch, could I kindly ask you if you would remove your scarf? I think that would enable this matter to progress. I appreciate and I respect the situation, but I think otherwise we're just going to be bogged down in this debate. I just think that might be a sensible way of moving on in this debate.

The CHAIR: Thank you, Senator Fierravanti-Wells. Senator Hinch?
