Senator TATE (Minister for Justice) (9.35 p.m.) —The amendment as read out by Senator Lees is self-explanatory. It certainly accords with the intention of the Commonwealth Government to assist the States and Territories to achieve a more appropriate balance between institutional and community care, and between curative care, disease prevention and health promotion activities. This is a very large assignment, but I believe it is one that needs to be undertaken. We are happy to do so in accordance with the framing of this amendment. Therefore, we support it.

  Amendment agreed to.

  Question put:

  That the Bill, as amended, be agreed to.
