Senator BARNETT (10:19 PM) —I make a short response to that. The minister has put her position and I can see where the numbers lie. I would like to see that advice in terms of the ART procedures not being allowed to continue. Clause 10 sets out a number of offences in the use of an excess ART embryo. My understanding is that it is an exempt use and therefore would not be caught by that particular amendment and the ART programs could continue. Anyway, that is the advice that she has received; I will leave on the table whether or not it is correct. It is disappointing that I cannot gain support for my amendment (1) on sheet 2757. I will say no more.
