(—) (): I thank Senator Hanson for her question. The government takes the issue of domestic violence extremely seriously. As part of all the things that this government is doing in the social security space, we are ensuring that the issue of domestic violence is front of mind, which ensures that, as a government, we seek to address this issue. We don't seek to sweep the issue under the carpet. We acknowledge the seriousness of the issue. In every way that we can, through a range of projects, we seek to try and deal with the issue. It's a serious social issue. It's an issue that affects so many people. (Time expired)
