I reject the premise of Senator O'Neill's question. We have continued and we will continue to support all communities in Australia—as the response from Minister Hunt to Senator O'Neill clearly indicates—with a whole range of incentives and programs that are designed to support Indigenous communities: workforce incentives, rural bulk-billing incentives, a distribution priority system to identify distribution of GPs. There is a range of things in place to support Australians, particularly in Indigenous communities.
