My question is to the Minister for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, Senator Reynolds. On 11 May this year, this minister was asked about the tragic death of 23-year-old Liam Danher, who died waiting for a seizure mat. The minister first claimed that she had personally been in contact with Liam's father, then she claimed she had offered to meet and had been in touch with Liam's father and then she admitted it was her office who had been in touch with Liam's father. Can the minister now clarify whether she has personally apologised to Liam's family and, if she has done so, when?
