Statement made on 07 November 2006 by Senator George Baker

Hon. George Baker:

I have a few words to say, Madam Chair, before another honourable senator of great reputation in this chamber is about to, as I understand it, move further amendments.

 

I would like to make specific reference to the speech just given and the amendments proposed by the honourable senator. Initially, I supported that position, and I think that a great many members of the committee did when the committee heard the evidence and prior to hearing all of the evidence. As the honourable senator was speaking, I was thinking that there is good reason to support him in his proposal. However, after listening to all of the evidence, I will instead support the section in the bill as proposed by the government with the amendments proposed by the committee.
