Senator McALLISTER (New South WalesDeputy Opposition Whip in the Senate) (13:56): I will quickly place Labor's view on the record. We agree with Senator Storer that increased scrutiny is certainly needed. The significant flaws in the existing evaluation have been referred to on many occasions in this debate, and an improved evaluation would be very welcome. We will, therefore, support your amendment. But I also wish to place on record my scepticism that it will improve things a great deal. Already $1.6 million of public money has been spent on a failed evaluation. I am not certain that the minister is capable of conducting a successful one.

Question agreed to.

Bill, as amended, agreed to.

Bill reported with amendments; report adopted.
