Senator STOTT DESPOJA —(12.24 p.m.)—The Democrats will be supporting this amendment. We think it is thoroughly fair and reasonable and, indeed, would have moved one comparable, or the same, had the Greens (WA) not done so.

It is something that we have mentioned on many occasions when debating education, training and student assistance legislation. I believe it may have been something that we attempted to do in relation to open learning and the criteria that students had to satisfy. We believe that a 25 per cent discount is more than appropriate for those students who may have some form of disability. I think, in the interests of fairness, all parties in the chamber should support this amendment.
