Some of the transparency measures that we've already put in place are particularly in respect of clinical care, and there are three clinical care indicators that were required to be reported by the sector, starting from 1 July last year. There are two more that are being considered now. We will continue consulting with the sector. In fact, I wrote to the advisory committee of the Aged Care Quality and Safety Commission late last year, asking them to report back to me about what other regulatory tools the quality and safety commission might need. I've received that report and I've referred that report to the royal commission so that they can quite properly consider those things in the context of their report that will come back this year.
