Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. I refer to the CEO of the Federation of Community Legal Centres, Ms Buchanan, who said:

The bottom line is in the government’s national partnership agreement that the former prime minister signed in July this year. It is clear and explicit that funding for community legal centres will still be cut by $12m in 2017…

As the issue is the cut of the $12 million, why is the minister misleading Australians about the government's cuts to legal services? (Time expired)
