Senator Bernardi, as I've said, the government has made the reference to the centre at the ANU. The reference itself will be an independent review. As it is a review of the evidence, the project does not have terms of reference. It is a review of the actual evidence—that is what the project will be doing. The project will include consideration of the health impact of e-cigarettes on specific population subgroups, including current smokers, former smokers and people who have never regularly smoked tobacco, and different age groups, including youth and Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. I'm instructed that the project is expected to be completed by December 2020.
