Senator CARRICK (Victoria) - I rise to state briefly the position of the Opposition on this clause. The Opposition will not oppose the clause. Nevertheless in my speech at the second reading stage of the Bill, on behalf of the Opposition I made it abundantly clear that we are implacably opposed to the policy inherent in the clause and that upon re-election to government we will restore the benefit. I made the comments on behalf of the Opposition at the second reading stage. I do not wish to delay the Senate now. We will support the measure. Because it is a Budget measure we will not obstruct it. We register our protest against what we regard as an iniquitous policy.
