Senator FEENEY (VictoriaParliamentary Secretary for Defence) (19:48): I thank the members of the Senate for their contributions to the debate on the Health Insurance Amendment (Professional Services Review) Bill 2012. The Professional Services Review Scheme and the Medicare Participation Review Committee process are important parts of the government's efforts to protect the integrity of the Medicare Benefits Scheme and the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. The bill will ensure that the Professional Services Review Scheme continues to operate effectively so that Medicare can provide high-quality, appropriate and safe health services for all Australians. I commend the bill to the Senate.

Question agreed to.

Bill read a second time.
