[by video link] I'll just rise briefly to note that the Greens will be supporting the amendments on sheet 1405. Once again, it's farcical of the government to claim that they are supporting recommendations in the Jenkins report in principle and then ask for more time when they've had 17 months. They should just be honest by saying that they don't want to fix this problem and that they don't want to have a prohibition against sexual harassment because probably many of the people in the ministry would be in trouble.

The CHAIR: The question is that amendments (1) to (6) on sheet 1405, as moved by Senator McAllister, be agreed to.
