Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (20:55): There was a clause added into the national bill from the Commonwealth bill—it's clause 13(1)(c) and it's on page 21—and it says:

… the sexual abuse is of a kind for which the maximum amount of redress payment that could be payable to the person (as worked out under the assessment framework) would be more than nil …

What I'm seeking to get on the record and to clarify is if somebody's payment is nil, because of the redress being indexed and taken off the payment, but are they still eligible—sorry, I know this can sound like double-dutch!—for the other components of the scheme if it turns out that their payment is nil, because of having received previous redress under another scheme?
