Mr SLIPPER (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Finance and Administration) (11:02 AM) —Very briefly, I wanted to correct the record and point out that it is the opposition that is undermining the stability and certainty provided by this tax by not allowing for this consequential amendment to allow the PRRT to recognise infrastructure licences and to allow the utilisation of infrastructure licences. The opposition is discouraging industry from continuing to use petroleum infrastructure in an efficient and effective manner. While there has been plenty of debate on this particular matter, at this stage it is clear that the opposition is going to persist with its amendments. The government rejects those amendments.

The DEPUTY SPEAKER (Mr Hawker)—The question is that the amendments be agreed to.

Question put:

That the amendments (Mr Cox's) be agreed to.
