Senator BARTLETT (10:05 AM) —Madam Chair, you will be pleased to know it is not going to be as complicated as Senator Evans might fear. Given Labor's insistence, despite my reasonable arguments, on pursuing their approach, obviously that is better than nothing from the point of view of the Democrats. To ensure that we do not knock each other out and end up with no reflection of the principle we have been outlining, of people being able to be not charged interest while they are having a decision reviewed, we would be willing to reluctantly support those amendments, which I think are (5), (18) and (25). Certainly we would be supporting all the other amendments in any case, as they were identical or similar to ones the Democrats had already circulated.

Amendments agreed to.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Sen-ator Knowles)—Senator Bartlett, are you wishing to withdraw those amendments?
