Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. I refer to the government's inadequate response to these job losses. In the minister's joint press release with the Liberal member for Braddon, Mr Brett Whiteley, they simply recommend that workers contact Centrelink. Given that the workers at Mount Lyell have been off work on half-pay for around six months, is 'contact Centrelink' the best that the employment minister and Mr Whiteley can do?
