The question is that opposition amendments on sheet 1319 be agreed to.

Opposition's circulated amendments—

(1) Clause 5, page 13 (lines 15 to 17), omit the definition of serious harm to a person's mental health, substitute:

serious harm to a person's mental health includes:

(a) serious psychological harm; and

(b) serious distress;

but does not include mere ordinary emotional reactions such as those of only distress, grief, fear or anger.
