Ms FORREST (Murchison) - Mr President, I choose to use this lectern because the people to whom I want to speak are the people at the back of our Chamber.
Mr President, this has been a really difficult couple of weeks for all of us. But our frustrations, difficulties and challenges are nothing at all compared to the people we are seeking to assist. They are the people at the back of the Chamber, all the families and others they represent, who we have heard from in person, in briefings, and by letter, email, phone calls and other communications. There has been an awful lot of misrepresentation of the intent and application of the bill we are now delaying for a period. I have spent hours on the phone clarifying those matters with constituents and I will continue to do so.
