My question is to the Prime Minister. Does the Prime Minister seriously deny he cut $1.7 billion from aged care when page 172 of his 2015-16 MYEFO says about aged care funding, 'The government will achieve savings of $472.4 million,' and page 101 of his Budget Paper No. 2 for 2016-17 says about aged-care funding, 'The government will achieve efficiencies of $1.2 billion'?

The government increases funding for aged care by $1 billion every single year.
