The problem is one of reading a set question after not listening to the answers to the previous two questions. As I have articulated clearly, and had confirmed by the Victorian minister, the workers in Victoria continue to have priority access to vaccines.

It's a pity that the senator didn't take notice of the first questions that we answered. We continue to work very cooperatively with the Victorian government in the interests of getting aged-care workers vaccinated, and we will continue to do that. It's a pity that the Labor Party here in Canberra continues to try to undermine confidence in the vaccination rollout process for their own political purposes. They continue to make these disgraceful accusations that are simply not true—
