Questions without Notice
On the point of order and to assist the Senate: firstly, there was no caller, so you're not quite representing the facts. But what I would say is that I misheard the number that was mentioned to me and I made a mistake. If I can clarify that for you: I'm happy to say that, in relation to what is clearly a very complicated set of arrangements when it comes to welfare payments—and based on having misheard the number—I did not provide an accurate response. But it was not in response to a caller.
