I thank the minister for that. I think it is still remarkably unsatisfactory. Nothing that the minister has said—and I know you are being as helpful as you can, Minister—has given me any comfort whatsoever as to why we should take this policy commitment, which could be reversed on a whim either by his government or by the one that may or may not follow, when we could simply put an amendment, so I will do so shortly down the track. Chair, I think it might assist the chamber if I formally move the first amendment and we actually start moving through these.
