Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. Can the minister advise whether the government will be acting on the Productivity Commission's criticisms of EFIC back in 2012; and, given the government has spoken at length about ending 'the age of entitlement' for Australian businesses and have refused to provide assistance to Holden and SPC Ardmona on this basis, can the minister explain how this loan from EFIC is consistent with the government's views and policies?
