Senator FIELDING (Leader of the Family First Party) (7:46 PM) —The conversation after the dinner break has been more constructive and productive than before the dinner break. I have moved the amendment and I want it put to the chamber because I think the principle is very important to lay on the table. But, quite clearly, there is no majority support around the chamber for a division on it. I do thank the coalition. The amendment really goes to the heart of the issue of patient information and who will be looking at these documents. It is an auditing trail. What I have put forward has a lot of merit given that patients will still be able to get the documents they want. They may not find it as efficient as they would like, but it gives them what they are after. I still think it will work, so I want the amendment put to the chamber.

Question negatived.
