Senator NEWMAN (Minister for Social Security and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women)(5.45 p.m.) —The government's intention in proceeding down the reform path is in fact to give greater choice to tenants, right across the board. We believe that flexibility and choice are not there currently. Under reform, we have the potential to increase that flexibility and choice for tenants. Therefore, we are prepared to accept the amendment Senator Margetts has before the chamber at the moment.

Amendment agreed to.
