Thank you, President. It's clear from this that First Nations Australians want to have their say on the Voice. This isn't really surprising, since the Voice is an idea that came from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people, through the Uluru Statement from the Heart, and is widely supported by representatives of First Nations Australians. Can the minister please outline what the government is hearing from representatives about their wish to participate in the Voice referendum later this year?
