The Senate Select Committee is getting organised.  The Senators on the
Committee will be:

Labor: Senator Peter Cook (Chair), Senator Stephen Conroy, Senator Kerry
Government: Senator Ron Boswell, Senator Jeannie Ferris, and Senator
George Brandis
Democrats: Senator Aden Ridgeway
Independent: Senator Len Harris.
The Committee Secretariat have organised the first meeting for the Committee
for next Thursday (11 March) at 10am. 

End facts, start opinion: informed guesses suggest this is the meeting
where they will decide the time frames for submissions, and hopefully
set some dates for hearings etc.
