Minister, you seem very confident that with the guidance, the way the ticket is written, people are going to understand what is going on—even though, after 32 years, people are struggling with this.

Senator Cormann interjecting—

That is great. I am interested then in why it says to vote '1' to '6' below the line. It seems you do not have faith that people can count to 12. Anyway, I am very glad that you are very confident that the guidance is going to work and you have so much faith in the Australian people. If you are so confident in the Australian people, why don't you have a sunset clause in the savings provisions?
