I just want to put on the record that we have supported Senator Patrick's amendment many times. We see merit in it. We have also, though, taken this up with the Treasurer—Senator Hanson is an astute negotiator. She's extracted commitments from the Treasurer: to investigate and to back up his claims. We make decisions based on data. What we'll be doing is giving the federal Treasurer a chance. If he doesn't deliver, then we'll be back with Senator Patrick. But if he can deliver—there are certain sensitive issues involved, and we want them clarified before we start taking capricious action.
