Senator PATTERSON (Minister for Health and Ageing) (1:25 PM) —I will not be supporting Senator Collins's amendments. I indicate, though, that if Senator Nettle is of a mind to move her amendment we will be supporting it. It fits more appropriately with the effect provided by AHEC, and I believe that the amendment proposed by Senator Nettle is preferable to that proposed by Senator Collins, even with her additional amendment to change `fitness for attachment' to `implantation'. Given the time, I think that is all the reasoning I need to give. I will be supporting Senator Nettle's amendment over Senator Collins's amendment.
