Senator HERRON (8.19 p.m.) —Clause 43(2), as it stands, means that a minimum threshold of child-care expenses, currently around $16 after fee relief, must be paid before the rebate takes effect, and the coalition accepts this. Our 1993 child-care policy statement states that after the first $15 a week of child-care expenses after fee relief the rebate would be payable. So for that reason we do not support the request.

  Request negatived.

  Clause agreed to.

  Remainder of bill—by leave—taken as a whole.
