As in previous amendments, I have already signalled my intention to address what I might describe as shortcomings in section 44 and will do so on Report Stage to bring the appropriate arrangements back, closer to the position as initiated, which was the extract that was read out by Senator Norris earlier from the explanatory memorandum. I never intended to require the senior group to make a section 45 statement to the Government. I will not accept the amendment but I will address the issue in the context of my amendments to section 49.
