No, I'm afraid I wasn't able to hear that. I've only just been able to dial back in. I suspect the minister and I don't agree on this issue. I'm just taking a wild guess!

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: I suspect you're possibly right, Senator Waters. Did you wish—

Could I just get a stick from the chair as to roughly at what point I cut out? There were a couple of facts and figures that I was hoping to get on the record. This is not a test!

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: Honestly, I couldn't say precisely. It faded out gradually. I would take the opportunity to get those things you want to get on the record on the record, Senator Waters.

Thank you, Chair. With your indulgence I will do that now. As I was saying, having the $450 threshold below which employers don't have to contribute to superannuation for their workers disproportionately—

The TEMPORARY CHAIR: I think we might go to Senator McAllister. I think we will just see if we can get those technical issues ironed out before we go back to Senator Waters. Senator McAllister, you have the call.
