I do grant people who ask questions the opportunity to emphasise the point, but I don't think commentary about the context of the question is appropriate to go into. The minister, in my view, was answering the question. I can't instruct him how to answer it and I definitely, as I've said before, can't instruct the content of an answer to the precision of words the opposition would prefer or an asker would prefer. There are opportunities to debate the content of answers after question time. That's not a matter for points of order. Senator Birmingham.
