Senator NETTLE (6:29 PM) —The Australian Greens will support the amendments put forward by the opposition, because they are an improvement on the existing punitive regime of mutual obligation as played out by the government. We do not support this regime or its extension to sole parents or to mature age unemployed, but in recognition that the amendments put forward by the opposition are an improvement on that regime we will support them.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Brandis)—The question is that opposition amendments (2) to (30)—including amendment (17), as amended—on sheet 2791 revised be agreed to.

Question agreed to.
