To suggest when I said that that I was misleading the House, and then to accept the correction and substitute some other words, I think reflects just that. The point I make is that there is urgency associated with this legislation. It is in a form that was acceptable to government members. My goodwill, as evidenced in a desire to further consider matters that have been raised in a bipartisan way in the Senate, should not be made light of in the way the member for Gellibrand has. It is only more likely to serve to encourage people to become more intransigent.

Question agreed to.
