Senator SPINDLER (10.36 a.m.) —The Australian Democrats strongly support this particular amendment which will make aids for disabled people cheaper. Over the years the Democrats have followed a policy of pressing for reductions in sales tax as well as tariffs for that particular purpose. I recall a successful amendment to remove customs tariffs from wheelchairs which I moved some 18 months ago and which the Government agreed to. The Australian Democrats fully support these amendments.

  Amendment agreed to.
