Question resolved in the affirmative.

Remuneration Tribunal Amendment Bill 2006

Debate resumed from 22 August 2006, on motion by Mr Stanhope:

That this bill be agreed to in principle.

MR STEFANIAK (Ginninderra—Leader of the Opposition) (4.57 am): The opposition will be supporting this bill. I thank the government for the briefing which I attended, along with Mrs Dunne, together with the quick response to a point raised by the scrutiny of bills report.

DR FOSKEY (Molonglo) (4.57 am): Ditto. I also thank the government for the briefing. It is always good when we can agree with the government after disagreeing so very heartily. In this case, the Greens will support this bill, though I do agree with the gist of Mrs Dunne's comments this morning—or was it yesterday morning?—that merely prescribing four-cylinder internal combustion engines is a very ham-fisted and possibly counterproductive mechanism. For something which is probably meant to minimise greenhouse gases, we need to be much more clear about what we are really talking about so that we do have the effect that we intend.
