Senator ARBIB (Minister for Employment Participation and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Government Service Delivery) (12:40 PM) —I thank Senator Ludlam and Senator Xenophon for their comments and their sentiment. The government appreciates the Greens’ concerns on this issue, but their position unfortunately is not supported by the evidence. This would not be a responsible measure, and therefore the government opposes the amendment.

Question negatived.

Original question agreed to.

Bills read a second time.
