As I think Senator Paterson is aware, the Minister for Home Affairs is conducting a review of all social media platforms, and the government will consider the recommendations of that review—a review, I might say, that never occurred under the former government. The concerns regarding TikTok are not new, and they've been public for some time. Again, something could have been done about this by the former government if they'd thought it was actually a concern. But, as I said, the minister is conducting this review. The Attorney-General has also requested advice on whether a government-wide ban is required to address projected security risks. (Time expired)
