Mr SCHULTZ (Hume) (13:45): It does not often happen in this place, but I rise today to thank the Minister for Health, the honourable member for Sydney, for the significant contribution she has made to easing the suffering of one of my constituents. I wrote to her on 27 April about a very serious issue centred around a drug that was not on the PBS, and to her credit she showed the compassion that we should all show to our constituents in this place and did something to make sure that that lady did not have to pay the amount of money that was needed to get the drug. I thank her most sincerely on behalf of my constituent and I thank her most sincerely for doing what needs to be done in this House from time to time—wonderful things done in a bipartisan way.
