My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister. I refer to General Motors Holden's submission to the Productivity Commission, which says:

Without public assistance, Holden's local manufacturing cannot compete globally.

Does the government accept that support is necessary to help sustain the auto industry and the thousands of people it employs in Australia?
