I thank Senator Patrick for his question. I have had a few things on of late. I don't have to hand, since getting notice that Senator Patrick was going to make this inquiry, an update on the status of that answer. As I've noted in this place before, the government continues to process through questions on notice in this chamber, as well as those taken through Senate estimates and committee processes. There are unparalleled numbers of questions to process answers to. I apologise for delays that occur from time to time in some answers making their way to the chamber. I acknowledge the hard work undertaken by many officials and others to provide the record numbers of answers to questions we have managed to facilitate through this parliament.
