Senator NETTLE (5:00 PM) —I am trying to be really specific with the questions. I am just looking for answers; I am not looking for political speeches about your view and the Labor Party's view on legal opinions and about putting in place arrangements that require more legal opinions to be got. I am actually looking for answers about the changes that are being made to the Therapeutic Goods Act by this implementing legislation, not the specific amendments that the Labor Party is putting forward. I am looking for answers about the changes to the Therapeutic Goods Act that the government has agreed to that would be enacted in the implementing legislation we are being asked to pass. Does the government have a view as to whether there are any public health benefits from the particular changes to the Therapeutic Goods Act that we are being asked to vote on?
