Thank you, Minister. You will be aware that, of the 51 cinemas in South Australia, 41 of them are independent. I appreciate what you've said about paying JobKeeper, but JobKeeper is about to end. You are potentially putting people in a position where you've supported them throughout the past year with JobKeeper only to let them fall over a cliff at the end. Is there a package specifically for cinemas, and when will you announce it?
