What was the amendment?
Senator Ludlam explained his amendment, saying that it:
once again adds local communities as a group that [the Government] should consult with in performing its functions ... This is something that goes to the heart of the way that infrastructure is done. They cannot sit in an office on the other side of the country, dropping infrastructure projects in from Google Earth. These things affect people. They actually affect local communities.
(14) Schedule 1, item 10, page 8 (line 28), at the end of section 6B, add:
; (c) local communities.
