I want to reiterate two things. One is that it's the government's strong view that it will assist the simplification of the matters if all legislation falls within the Minister for Veterans' Affairs' remit. In relation to a response to the recommendations that have been made by the committee, the government has 90 days in which to respond, and, if I'm correct, we've only had them for a couple of weeks.
