Thank you, Mr President. With respect to the interim report and the COVID-19 report of the royal commission, the government has responded to both of those reports. We have continued to reform the sector—passing new legislation, which places additional responsibilities on the sector. The Serious Incident Response Scheme was passed through this place only last week, so we have continued to reform the sector while the royal commission has continued and we will continue to do so.
