Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. More than 70,000 Australians visit Croatia and millions more Australians—many of them young backpackers—head overseas every year to experience new cultures. When things go wrong, they rely on the Australian government and its resources to be there for them. Given the Lapthorne family believe they were not given adequate support by their government during an extremely difficult time, will the federal government mount an inquiry into the processes undertaken in the case of Britt Lapthorne with a view to how they can be improved in the future, and will the government table the report of its inquiry in the parliament?
