Thank you, Mr Speaker. I will resist responding to the sneering interjections of the Leader of the Opposition, because what Australians know is, as a result of the response to this pandemic, more than 30,000 lives have been saved by the very arrangements we have put in place with the states and territories. Those opposite might want to sneer at that and not support it, but this country has come through this pandemic and continues to move through this pandemic, particularly in response to new variants, and we are dealing with omicron now in a calm, sensible and balanced way. We'll deal with other governments on these issues, because we know that, when it comes to the pandemic, the Labor Party always plays politics before putting forward the national interest.
