It is fairly simple, really. We are discussing the terminology 'up to 450 gigalitres'. We have not been assured on this side of the chamber that the 450 gigalitres is attainable through the processes that are outlined. If the 450 gigalitres cannot be attained by the government, or by whoever is in government at the time, through those infrastructure works and the efficiencies, will the minister unequivocally rule out that any of that 450-gigalitre requirement will come from buybacks?
