Here we see what it's all about. Our government continue to do what we can to support New South Wales in working as fast as possible in providing support to bushfire-affected communities. In relation to cleaning of debris across bushfire-affected areas and, in particular, in the electorates that Senator Watt has mentioned, I'm advised that by 20 June about 208 properties are expected to be cleared—188 now. In Snowy Monaro, 31 will be cleared by 20 June—11 today. In Queanbeyan-Palerang, 64 will be cleared by 20 June—48 today. In the Bega Valley, 431 will be cleared by 20 June—375 as of today. In Eurobodalla, 600 will be cleared by 20 June—570 by today.
