The answer is no. I have been clear in relation to the finalisation of the 60 per cent AIC commitment and the nature of the protection of the provisions in terms of the commercial sensitivity of those—and they are matters, as I said, of which Senator Gallacher is well aware.

In concluding my answer, I also seek the indulgence of the Senate to refer to the members of the National Rural Women's Coalition muster, who are here in the gallery in the Senate chamber today. From Christmas Island to Pakenham, Hamilton, Noosa shire, Weipa, Wagga Wagga and multiple locations in between, I welcome them to the Senate.
