Senator CARR (10:06 PM) —The opposition will be opposing the Democrat's request for amendment (1) on sheet 4373. My reading of this proposal suggests that, in fact, there is a shortfall of $11 million. So there is no provision in this measure for the additional $11 million. We will also be opposing the Greens' amendment coming up shortly because that seems to imply that the parliament should not accept this expenditure of $11 million on literacy, which is a proposition I think it would be difficult for us to support.
