With respect, Minister Cash, you're glossing over the fact that families and expecting parents will be missing out on payments that they otherwise were planning to receive because they no longer meet that eligibility test. That is happening to them here and now, and you are trying to tell me that this government has no idea how many of these families are being impacted by the loss of employment because of COVID-19, in terms of their eligibility for paid parental leave?
