Senator IAN CAMPBELL (Minister for Local Government, Territories and Roads) (10:30 AM) —When we adjourned last evening, we were having an important debate in the committee stage on an amendment to the Health Legislation Amendment (Medicare) Bill 2003 that I think was moved by Senator Kerry Nettle.


Senator Nettle —No. We had already voted on that.


Senator IAN CAMPBELL —We had voted on that, had we? I came into the chamber just after that.


The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Ferguson)—We had voted on that. The amendment was negatived, I am informed.


Senator IAN CAMPBELL —I thought it would be useful to make a few remarks while the opposition spokesman came into the chamber, unless Senator Lees or Senator Nettle have questions they want to proceed with straightaway.
