Certainly. You should have a fair day's pay for a fair day's work. Let me address this issue. It is critically important that superannuation policy is right, and it is critically important that we work together on a bipartisan basis to ensure that it is right. The coalition government has put forward a very detailed policy as outlined in the budget. Those opposite do not believe in some of the flexibility measures that would actually deliver for individuals the ability to contribute more into their superannuation to provide more in their retirement. We on this side think it is important to protect those flexibility measures, which is why we have argued so strongly for them. I welcome that the member for Fenner would like to join with the government and actually reach a bipartisan agreement, and I look forward to meeting with him and discussing his views on the superannuation policy that the government has announced.
