Senator McLUCAS (QueenslandParliamentary Secretary for Disabilities and Carers) (19:28): I know it is a little unusual to make a third reading speech, but this will be very short. I have commended the Minister for Health and Ageing for her leadership in this case. I think it is also appropriate that we recognise that our department, the Department of Health and Ageing, has shown enormous leadership, both here in Australia and internationally, and we should commend the many officers of that department who have done so much to get us to this point.
