My question is to the Minister representing the Minister for Defence, Senator Payne. I refer to reports that the New South Wales minister for health, Brad Hazzard, wrote to Minister Hunt on 11 August requesting the Australian Defence Force open vaccinations centre in Sydney and in the state's west. Now 12 of New South Wales's hardest hit local government areas in Western Sydney are facing even tighter restrictions, including curfews, and the state is facing an ever-worsening outbreak. Why, almost two weeks later, has the Morrison-Joyce government failed to formally respond to the New South Wales government's request for help in Western Sydney?
