One Nation stands opposed to the privatisation of aged care assessment teams, or ACAT. I have spoken directly with the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians. I have been given an ironclad guarantee by Minister Colbeck that the Morrison government has no desire to privatise ACAT. I commend Senator Keneally for her bipartisan stance with One Nation against the privatisation of government services. I encourage her to speak directly with the minister and, if need be, get his assurances in writing. One Nation will not squander the Senate's time tomorrow by calling for a further explanation from the minister. If the government's actions change, you will have my full support in calling them out.
