I'm advised that, to complement the rollout of the debit card, we are committed to an additional $1 million in Ceduna and $1.6 million in the East Kimberley in new funding for support services in the first 12 months to ensure vulnerable people are supported. In relation to the Goldfields communities, there will also be an additional $1 million in funding for wraparound services. So it's $1 million in Ceduna, $1.6 million in East Kimberley and $1 million in the Goldfields.
