Mr DUTTON (3:17 PM) —Mr Speaker, on indulgence: I want to join with the Minister for Health and Ageing and congratulate the government on this funding for breast care nurses. It is certainly an important area. Those people who were present yesterday to hear the words of Glenn McGrath could only have been moved by his account of Jane’s actions and the desire that she had to see other Australians enjoy services providing support during what must be an incredibly difficult period for women suffering from that terrible condition. It builds on the funding that the coalition was able to give the McGrath Foundation when we were in government. We commend and support the government in this measure, and we look forward to working together with the government in the future as well.
