My question is to the Minister representing the Prime Minister, Senator Cormann. Yesterday, the minister said that HomeBuilder would be:

… directly supporting 140,000 tradies and a further up to one million jobs indirectly in the residential construction sector.

ASIC estimates there were 1,183,000 people employed in the entire construction sector last year. Does the minister stand by his claim that every single construction job in the country will be supported by HomeBuilder?
