Senator MARK BISHOP (6:41 PM) —These amendments are similar to those canvassed by Labor. However, these apply to the Austudy schedule of the act while Labor's focus is on the labour market and activity tested payments—of which Austudy is not one. From the feedback that we receive, breaching in relation to Austudy does not really hit the radar screen. These amendments will not benefit all that many people. However, we acknowledge that Labor's amendments assist youth allowance recipients who study so, for the sake of consistency and in the absence of ALP amendments for this group, we will not oppose this batch of Democrat amendments.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Brandis)—The question is that Democrat amendments (21) to (31) on sheet 2700 revised be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
