Senator SCULLION (7:54 PM) —by leave—I move opposition amendment (7) on sheet 5987:

(7)    Schedule 1, item 2, page 10 (after line 5), after subsection 129AAJ(1), insert:

      (1A)    In making an application under subsection (1), the person or estate may provide the Medicare Australia CEO with additional information to substantiate (wholly or partly) that the amount paid, purportedly by way of benefit or payment under this Act in respect of the service, should have been paid.

The opposition opposes item 2 in schedule 1 in the following terms:

Schedule 1, item 2, page 10 (lines 15 and 16), subsection 129AAJ(5) to be opposed.

I understand, Minister, that amendment (7), through negotiation, has been agreed to. It is item (8) that is under some sort of contention. Hopefully I will be addressing it, perhaps to the advisers.
