MR DAVIS: Madam Speaker, thank you. The Greens will not be supporting Ms Castley’s amendment. I once again commend my motion to the Assembly.

MS STEPHEN-SMITH (Kurrajong—Minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Affairs, Minister for Families and Community Services and Minister for Health) (4.19), by leave: I would like to clarify a comment, based on Mr Davis’s speech. I think Mr Davis said that I had indicated that there would not be any general practice that was subject to payroll tax. What I indicated in my speech was that the Revenue Office are not going out and sending bills to people proactively. They are doing work with general practices to understand the potential impacts. I just wanted to clarify that.

MR DAVIS (Brindabella) (4.20), by leave: I would not want there to be any misunderstanding that I verballed the minister. I meant to relay exactly the point the minister just made.

Question put:
