I think it is interesting that the minister says, 'I can't tell you now, because I would have to add it up in my head.' Maybe you should actually add it up and give it to people before you put this legislation forward. How about that? That is a novel thought, isn't it? I will come back to the debt ceiling, but since the minister raised it: what is the cumulative impact over the forward estimates of the decisions the government has taken since being elected?
