In response to Senator Siewert's question, all of the institutions that sit underneath the application will be available online, so the survivors can actually have a look at all of the institutions. The purpose of this measure, I suppose, is to not put a huge list of institutions to a survivor, but they will be able to get access to the actual institutions. The changes have been sought to be put in place because we've been advised of the fact that this is a more trauma-informed way of being able to provide the information to survivors.
