Senator STOTT DESPOJA (10:38 AM) —I commend Senator Barnett—and, similarly, the Minister for Health and Ageing and the government—for taking on board some of the concerns that people had with the original amendments. Some of us were concerned in advance of the Scrutiny of Bills Committee report being handed down, but when it was released yesterday afternoon it outlined that there were some issues—certainly issues with which my party room had some problems. I commend them for that and indicate that the Democrats will also support the amendments before the chamber.
