Senator CASH (Western AustraliaMinister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Public Service, Minister for Employment and Minister for Women) (17:58): I thank Senator Muir for moving the amendments. Of course, the government supports each and every measure contained in the bill, as I outlined in my summing up speech. Certainly the measures give effect to the government's commitment before the 2013 federal election. However, the government is also committed to listening and speaking with the crossbenchers, listening to their concerns and taking them into account. As such, whilst our conversations continue, the government has decided to support the amendments moved by Senator Muir and on behalf of a number of his crossbench colleagues.
