Like the continual interjections from Senator Abetz: negative, carping, having a go at anything, not analysing the success of the program we are putting forward on the evidence that is available—that is, WA. As I said, if this legislation is voted down as a result of the Liberal-National Party failure to understand the issues and their failure to examine the evidence and look at the positive outcomes, it will be a sad day for Australian consumers. Shame on you, Senator Abetz!

Question put:

That these bills be now read a second time.
