If the minister could, in answering Senator Macdonald’s question, also, in passing, detail for me whether he is saying, in addition to the three per cent which is warranted from the government’s increased coverage promise from 90 to 93 per cent of Australian homes, that the other part of the computation relates to greenfields sites, and that the three per cent plus the greenfields sites—if I understand the minister correctly—justifies the increase in the quantum of years of close to 20 per cent, that being an additional year and a half over eight years. Could the minister please detail the numbers that he has used to justify the greenfields sites, adding to the three per cent to come up with an additional year and a half, so that I can help my homespun maths?
