As I said, I and this government fundamentally reject the assertions that are the premise of that question. It is not true. I have just outlined on behalf of Minister Burke a whole range of protections and made the absolute point—and I will make it again—that we will not allow the lowering of standards as part of this process. We will not allow it, and we will not allow the Greens to represent that that is the case. If there is any further information that the minister might like to respond to, I will seek that for you.
