Mr President, I ask a supplementary question. I thank the minister for his answer, and there is a sprig of wattle coming his way. The Parliamentary Budget Office costed the Greens' progressive superannuation policy, which broadly offers a 15 per cent deduction below marginal tax rates, as bringing in $8.7 billion over the estimates period. I seek leave to table that costing.

Leave granted.

Is the government prepared to fix these unfair tax breaks and work with the Greens before these tax breaks cost the budget more than the entire pension expenditure combined? (Time expired)
