Minister, I've got a terrific council, a great local mayor, in the Blue Mountains, but he doesn't speak for me on every issue. He doesn't represent me on every issue. There are another 81 organisations that were consulted. How many of those organisations—it is a simple question. You can tell me those that support it, but you can't tell me those that oppose it. Can't you tell me how many opposed it? It is a simple question and, given that you are saying it's got support and you are using the consultation as the reason to roll this out, I'm simply asking how many opposed it.
