Senator CHRIS EVANS (Minister for Immigration and Citizenship) (6:49 PM) —Senator Bernardi asked me a question regarding Treasury modelling today, and in my answer I referred to a report by NATSEM. In fact it was not NATSEM. Before they get upset with me I want to correct the record. In fact it was a report that I had seen which was from the Melbourne Institute—the Household, Income, and Labour Dynamics in Australia, or HILDA, survey—which showed comparatively that older Australians had done worse between 2001 and 2005 compared to other categories of Australian citizens. I just want to correct the record. I referred to it as a NATSEM report and it was not; it was a HILDA report. I apologise to the Senate and I apologise to NATSEM.
