Senator MACKLIN(11.16) -I do not often agree with Senator Walters. In fact I cannot remember the last time. But this is certainly a case on which I agree with her wholeheartedly. A reason should be given. From the point of view of the amendment we are discussing I am quite sure the Nursing Mothers Association of Australia is very keen to know why somebody else has been chosen and it has not. I am not speaking against the Australian Irish Society and I have no intention of moving to take it out. Senator Walters is not asking for that either. All she is asking is: why is it included? That is a perfectly reasonable question to ask and to get an answer for.

Senator Walsh —You have had an answer.
