[by video link] I thank the senator for her question. What we have ruled out are irresponsible measures, such as the one proposed by Mr Albanese. We've said that we will consider appropriately targeted measures in support of the vaccine rollout at appropriate times during the vaccine rollout. So we will continue, as I have said, to responsibly engage with the Australian people to provide them with the opportunity to take up a vaccine and to ensure that they all have that opportunity by the end of this calendar year. We are on target to do that, as we've said on a number of occasions. And we will, at the appropriate time, consider targeted measures in support of the vaccine rollout.
