I appreciate the minister's undertaking. Chinese companies own or have significant stakes in many strategic and sensitive infrastructure assets, including the ports of Darwin and Melbourne, our electricity poles and wires, 30 per cent of our taxpayer subsidised wind and energy projects, significant water holdings and as much Australian farming land as entities from the previous largest title holder, the UK. When will the government get serious about limiting control of our strategically important assets by companies linked to the Chinese communist government?
