While I did participate a little bit in the question and answer, I have some questions myself around this. I also want to articulate the Greens' position. There are a number of points I brought up during the debate which are, clearly, major points of difference between us and the government. However, I have had some feedback on specific issues—we've just had a look at the one around costing. What I specifically wanted to know about the Indue card, which is an operational detail, is: why has the government or Indue not re-issued the cards that aren't usable on EFTPOS machines? Let's do that one to begin with.
