My question is to the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians, Senator Colbeck. In its response to the final report on the Newmarch House COVID-19 outbreak, the Liberal New South Wales government determined:

… neither the Commonwealth nor Anglicare Executive had an operational plan for how the residents should be managed.

Why did the minister fail to have a COVID-19 plan for aged care?
