My question is to the Prime Minister, in the hope that he'll answer one. According to the government's own fair pay calculator, under the Prime Minister's industrial relations changes, hairdressers working part-time Thursday to Saturday could lose more than $3,000 a year from their take-home pay. Why is the Prime Minister punishing Australians who are just trying to get ahead by allowing cuts to their take-home pay?

Before I call the Prime Minister, I say to all members, particularly the member for McEwen, obviously, that if any commentary such as that included in his question with respect to the Prime Minister answering the question occurs again, the question will not go ahead. The Prime Minister has the call.

It is because I'm not.
