The whole point of this measure is to ensure that through this process a veteran does not have to fight, that it is a more veteran-friendly, informal opportunity for dispute resolution. This is the whole point. If it can be avoided, we should not send veterans into the sort of circumstance that you are describing, which is the whole reason why we are proposing to make this change. We are very grateful that, after making the improvements that Senator Gallagher indicated, the Labor Party sees fit to support this measure.
