Questions without Notice
The minister had been speaking for seven seconds, and I think I heard more words from some interjectors than I had from the minister in those seven seconds. The preamble to the question was about vaccines. The final words I have, and I'm happy to be corrected, are: 'What assumptions underpin the budget?' If I misheard I'm happy to be corrected. I'm definitely not going to rule on direct relevance seven seconds in when the minister has referenced part of the question in his opening statement. I will listen to his answer. I'll remind the minister of the question. Senator Birmingham to continue.
