Senator POLLEY (Tasmania) (09:39): The government has bungled the opt-out period badly and lost the trust and confidence of the Australian people in My Health Record. This Centre Alliance amendment is an effort to restore that trust and confidence by limiting the use of the record to health purposes. However, Labor accepts that in very limited circumstances access to My Health Records may be needed by law enforcement or other government agencies. Labor is also satisfied that the government's changes, which require a court order for that access to occur, are appropriate protections, so Labor will not be supporting this amendment.

The CHAIR: The question is that the amendments, as moved by Senator Griff, on sheet 8539 be agreed to.

Question negatived.
