Senator GRIMES (Minister for Social Security)(9.42) —I reject Senator Macklin's heated statement. If the Council says that it rejects something because it is frivolous, that is not giving a reason at all. If it is sufficient for the Council to say that, I believe the legislation is sufficient as it is. I think Senator Macklin is getting a bit pedantic towards this late stage of the session.
