Mr Deputy Speaker Andrews, I seek your indulgence to correct an answer given during question time.

Leave granted.

When answering a question about the extensive work under the Drought Communities Program, I inadvertently at one stage referred to the Stronger Communities Program, I just wanted to correct the record in that regard and make the point that this side of the House will always stick by those in regional Australia doing it tough, and those suffering the effects of drought are certainly no exception.
