The opposition is very happy to support the amendments that have been made in the Senate. I note that some of it has come out of direct consultation that the Leader of the Opposition has undertaken with the Prime Minister and with the Treasurer. Today has been a good example of the parliament at its best, working at a time when the nation is facing some of its worst. If we find that we need to be here again earlier than has been scheduled, then I think the demeanour and the determination of all members of parliament will be exactly as they have been today.
