I took on notice today part of a question that related to some timing around the minister I represent and his views. Minister Wyatt has said that, after he was interviewed by a Four Corners team, additional facts came to his attention, including the increase—which I noted in my answer—in the number of serious incidents reported in aged care, and, as a result, has amended his views. The royal commission was announced on 16 September.
