Additional Comments by Labor Senators

1.1        Labor Senators are generally supportive of the bills, subject to consideration of the tranche of amendments currently being developed by the Government to enact other parts of the Timor Sea Maritime Boundaries Treaty, which have not been introduced into the Parliament as yet.

1.2        Labor Senators are prepared to work constructively with the Government on this matter and believe that the committee should be given an opportunity to scrutinise the additional amendments when they are introduced into the Parliament.

1.3        Labor recognises the importance of Australia's relationship with Timor-Leste and its achievements as one of the world’s newest and proudest democracies.
