Bills: Treasury Laws Amendment (Enhancing Whistleblower Protections) Bill 2017 - In Committee

6 December 2018

Senator PATRICK: Centre Alliance won't be supporting the Greens amendment, for similar reasons to those espoused by Senator O'Neill. But I can assure Senator Whish-Wilson that, as soon as the bill has passed, my office will be contacting the government and we will be pestering—close to the point of stalking—the government to make sure that we continue down this pathway, this very good pathway, that we're on. I'm reminded of the saying: how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time is the answer. So, whilst we agree with the sentiment of the Greens, we will not be supporting the amendment.
