The government does not support these amendments. These amendments only add red tape with no additional benefit and they risk delaying the delivery of critical infrastructure that will enhance the long-term productive capacity of the economy. The opposition's amendments are about increasing duplication and are disruptive of parliamentary processes. They stand in the way of the government building a stronger, more prosperous economy and investing in new infrastructure.

The CHAIRMAN: The question is that opposition amendments (7), (10), (11) and (13) be agreed to.
