I'll take that interjection. It's like an episode of The Simpsons. But, seriously, you really have to wonder, if solar panels are a national security threat, why is there no such scrutiny on nuclear?

Meanwhile, for nine long years, the coalition was totally asleep at the wheel on cybersecurity and energy security and the need to protect the infrastructure that Australians rely on every day. Perhaps those opposite should explain to the Australian people why their government turned a blind eye to procurement from high-risk vendors for a decade, creating the very risks that they decry today. We do need to lessen that supply chain concentration. Luckily, we've got a government that will get after it.
