Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(11.41) —in reply-I thank Senator Martin for her co-operation and acknowledge that co-operation. I thank Senator Macklin for his co-operation and acknowledge that co-operation. I hope that Senator Martin will not think I am churlish to point out that I am not thanking those other, I think, 17 Opposition senators who spoke only on those sections with which they took issue and in doing so accused us of creeping republicanism, socialism by stealth and all the other colourful representations. I thank, in particular, Senator Martin, the Australian Democrats and Senator Harradine who, for much of the time, did not say anything.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
