Chair, I do appreciate your courtesy to me earlier. That was obviously an amendment that would have inserted a sunset clause into this legislation. Having said that, the Greens oppose schedule 1, item 8, on sheet 8485 in the following terms:

(1) Schedule 1, item 8, page 11 (lines 3 to 28), sections 82.5 and 82.6 of the Criminal Code to be opposed.

The CHAIR: The question is that sections 82.5 and 82.6, in item 8 of schedule 1, stand as printed.
