I said that I didn't have a number for you, but I'm more than happy to find the exact number of how we break down the receipts from company tax, which is essentially what you're asking me to do—to break it down into a subset of a particular industry. I'm happy to do that and come back to the chamber. The point I am making, though, is that, whilst that is a contributor to the revenue improvements that we're seeing in the budget—and we welcome that—there are other factors at play here. One is the fact that we are strongly handling the economy and that we've got low unemployment and strong wages growth, which is also relevant to the budget bottom line. (Time expired)
