Yes, I think so. From my recollection, the ending of the LMITO was in fact flagged by your government. If you're now going to fund that, I look forward to a budget reply which tells Australians how you will fund that. Senator Hughes, you are asking a question about a policy. If your policy position is to fund that, I look forward to Mr Dutton outlining his plan to fund that, and which government services—which parts of Medicare—he's not going to deliver in order to fund that. We are very focused, in this budget, on ensuring we provide responsible cost-of-living assistance to Australians. Obviously, there is always more that you would do if you could. (Time expired)
