appears a bit presumptive. Similarly, having access to or calling for a report on any matter required under any contract to which the provider is a party appears imperious and unnecessary, to say the least.

MR HARGREAVES (Brindabella—Minister for Territory and Municipal Services, Minister for Housing, Minister for Multicultural Affairs) (6.57): The government will be supporting the opposition’s amendment here. It is quite clear that in the Leader of the Opposition’s office there resides a former senior lawyer within the public sector somewhere. Obviously this particular piece of legislation has been examined by the keen eye of a senior lawyer from the public sector. I congratulate that particular senior lawyer for all of the work. We are happy to support the amendment.

Amendment agreed to.

Debate (on motion by Mr Corbell) adjourned to the next sitting.
