My question is to the Prime Minister. Yesterday I raised the predicament of the Khan family in my electorate, who had one member approved for a flood relief payment and others rejected. They were without power for 27 days. I provided further information to the Prime Minister's office as requested. Can the Prime Minister confirm that instead of providing further assistance, his government is now demanding that the only member of the Khan family to receive the flood payment pay it back?

I thank the member for her question. Since question time yesterday and question time today I have not had the opportunity to review that information, as you'd imagine, over the course of the last 24 hours with the delivery of the budget and the many other matters that attended that. But I'll undertake to review the information that the member has raised and get back to her as soon as I can.
