Parental Access BillThe Parental Access Bill was not discussed at today's party room.
I have decided to defer introduction of the Bill to enable further discussion with colleagues.
The Commonwealth Government remains strongly committed to the principle of giving parents access to government information about government health services provided to their children under 16.
I'm confident that there are ways to provide parental access to government information without damaging doctor-patient confidentiality.
