Again, I reject the premise of Senator Wong's question. What I will do is what I've said I will do in previous questions during question time today. I will continue to work in the interests of senior Australians; I will continue to bring reforms forward to government, as I have done during my tenure and I will continue to work to ensure that senior Australians have access to the resources and the support that they need to ensure that they get an appropriate level of care throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. The $1.5 billion, as a result of my interventions and work with the RC and the government, is a clear demonstration of the fact I take this role seriously. I'll continue to do just that.
