Ms KATE ELLIS (AdelaideMinister for Employment Participation and Childcare and Minister for the Status of Women) (17:03): I take this opportunity to thank both the Deputy Speaker and all members who have contributed to this debate. It is nice when we can enjoy those warm moments where the House comes together to commend a bill and we can all agree that it is a positive step forward.

As has been outlined both when I introduced the Higher Education Support Amendment (No. 1) Bill 2011 and in contributions since, the bill will improve the efficiency and effectiveness and maintain the ongoing integrity of the government's income-contingent loan programs. We have had a good debate from members on both sides. I thank members for their contributions and take this opportunity once more to commend the bill to the House.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.

Ordered that this bill be reported to the House without amendment.
