My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann—and could I also add my congratulations to your elevation to leader of the Senate. On Sunday, when asked why wage growth is as low as two per cent when company profits have grown 20 per cent, the Prime Minister said, 'I don't accept the validity of that description.' What does the Prime Minister think is invalid—the Australian Bureau of Statistics' measure of growth at two per cent or its measure of company profit growth at 20 per cent?
