My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. I refer to the former Minister for Home Affairs, Peter Dutton, who this morning told Triple M radio:

Does the Turnbull government support Mr Dutton's policy proposal? If not, will the government rule out taking GST off electricity bills for families?
