I will respond very briefly. A number of senators, including Senator Day, have now attempted to address very specific questions very specifically—and I did myself, very specifically. So if you would like this debate to progress, why don't you take your new dance partner and say to them, 'How about you actually learn what is in the bill and answer the questions?' Then we might be able to progress, because we have now had four separate senators ask the same basic question about the legislation of the minister, and he has literally repeated the answer to a different question. So why don't you wander over there and have a word in his ear and say, 'How about, if you want to actually progress it, Minister, you start answering some questions?'
