I would have to take on notice the precedent question that you asked, because I want to make sure that all my answers here are accurate, and I'm sorry, but I don't have all of that dating back to 1901, where your question leads me to. So, I would want to have a look at that.

I would also say that the regulations tabled by the Assistant Treasurer and Minister for Financial Services had I think responded to some of the concerns that had been raised around transparency in this place from the draft regulations to ensure that those questions around transparency could be dealt with. I'm sure the Senate will have more to say on this as it debates these regulations, but I think the Assistant Treasurer responded to some of the concerns and that data will be provided. But, as you know—and I think I've heard it from you guys plenty of times over the years—making sure that reporting is transparent but is also efficient and effective is equally important.
