I certainly did not say that the minister had said it was the Four Corners report. I certainly didn't say that the minister said it was the terms of reference. So I don't accept both premises of the question. I simply don't accept them. This is not a place to make stuff up. Again, we are very proud to be a government that puts people over politics. All week we've had the partisan approach: criticise and then cut. Every element of the most comprehensive level of protection and support in home care and residential care for our eldest Australians has been criticised by those opposite. The question should remain in everyone's minds: does the criticism now revert to cuts? You should stand in this place and support the fantastic initiatives of this government in the area of aged care.
