Mr CHESTER (Gippsland) (09:46): In the same spirit of bipartisanship just demonstrated by the member for Menzies can I congratulate the minister on behalf of the Nationals as well. I also recognise, with his presence in the chamber, the former Parliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Children's Services, the member for Maribyrnong, who I believe has been an outstanding advocate in this place for people with disabilities and their carers, and who I believe contributed significantly to moving this debate forward at a time when it was possible it may have stalled. I congratulate him in his presence and I congratulate the government for the steps it has taken today.

Question agreed to.
