My question's to the Minister for Health. The minister just boasted about 10,000 more home-care packages, only half of which are currently available; 28,000 older Australians died while waiting for their approved home-care package in just two years. Surely Australians who've contributed all of their lives deserve better. Will the minister admit now that 5,000 packages in response to a waiting list of over 112,000 amounts to neglect?
