I acknowledge the contribution to this debate from the member for Scullin, a man known in Victorian politics for his integrity. The contrast between the member for Scullin and the member for Shortland's contributions on this bill and some of the acts of integrity—or the opposite of that—which we've seen from the government this week are striking. I do note earlier this afternoon a tweet from Naomi Wolf asking the Minister for Energy and Emissions Reduction to correct the record on his misleading of the parliament in his first speech in this chamber. That's not something I expected to happen this week, to be fair, but that's what we have to deal with when we're dealing with the travails of those opposite when it comes to integrity in this place.
