Senator WONG (Minister for Climate Change and Water) (6:02 PM) —I am not sure that Senator Xenophon was in the chamber when I indicated our attitude on the heat pumps issue. I did read into Hansard the government’s approach on this, including the flagging of regulations and the COAG review. I think senators in the chamber do share a concern about this aspect of the legislation—that is, the actual effect on the ground not being consistent with the policy outcome. I think people would share that view in relation to heat pumps. I have put that on the record, Senator. I am happy to take you through it again if you wish me to, but I think I did that earlier in the debate.
