I note that Mr Barnier was first appointed by then Minister Collins, the then minister in charge of aged care, to support the work that the government was doing through the Aged Care Financing Authority. So the false assertions that were made in the question only go to my point about the disgraceful smear on Mr Barnier that Labor are attempting. Mr Barnier is doing some important work relating to the financial structure of the aged-care sector, which is his area of expertise, and I have confidence in the work that he's doing for the government.
