Senator BERNARDI (South Australia) (12:39): I put on the record that groupthink is not endemic in this place. I'm opposed to extending this. I think the Australian people have had plenty of time to opt out and get their house in order and that extending it for another week, two weeks or two months is not going to make any difference to those people who haven't bothered to acquaint themselves with the circumstances. I also make the point that, should they wish to do so after My Health Record is implemented, they could delete their record of their own accord. Notwithstanding this, I understand the numbers are certainly there for this. I won't call a division on it, but I want to put on the record that I just don't see these delays as being necessary. But politics is what it is and the numbers will rule.
