I again reject the premise of your question. As I said, we have welcomed the interim report of the disability royal commission. Again, as I have already stated, one of our most important tasks during the course of COVID-19 has been to protect people with disability. As we have also stated, we all have a role to play in stamping out violence, abuse, neglect or exploitation of people with disability. The government has acted swiftly and decisively to help protect Australians with disability in response to the evolving impact of COVID-19. As I've said, we will now work across portfolios and across ministers in relation to the recommendations.
