Mr HOWARD —by leave-I would like to point out to the House that all of the changes to this legislation which the Acting Treasurer (Mr Hurford) has announced will be introduced by the Government arise out of a report by the Senate Standing Committee on Finance and Government Operations. The report would never have arisen in the first place had it not been for the action of the Opposition in the other place in referring this matter to the Senate. In fact, the action taken by the Government, which it claims will improve the legislation and partially restore it to the original intent, as foreshadowed in my Budget Speech last year, derives entirely from the action of the Opposition in the other place.
