I thank the parliamentary secretary. I certainly will return to the Hansard from last night. Can the parliamentary secretary please explain to me what form the public statement he is referring to will take? Is there an example that you can give us, Parliamentary Secretary, of what form this commitment via public statement will take so that we have some understanding as to the strength that people can attribute to it as part of Australia's undertakings?
