At a budget estimates hearing on Wednesday, Ms Archer said the government would observe the rollout of the Victorian legislation and its impact.

It is so far unknown how it would treat the sale of Nazi memorabilia.
The proposed laws will be discussed at a regular meeting of state and federal Attorneys-General next month.
