Senator NEWMAN (Social Security) (10:36 AM) —To draft an amendment to the act they were moving to amend they used a version of the act which was wrong.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN —Can I ask the minister, is it likely that we could obtain a fuller explanation or is that the sum total of the explanation available?

Senator NEWMAN —I am assured we could. But it was simply a human error that we took a version from a document that was wrong. It has been rectified to deal with the real situation.
