Senator WHISH-WILSON (Tasmania) (19:14): Thank you, but you did not address my last question about the tax commissioner, Chris Jordan. Did he at first refuse a request from Scott Morrison, the Treasurer, to bring in the cut on 1 July, saying he was only able to adjust tax scales in accordance with enacted law? To save time, I will ask you the second question on that. It was reported that he did back down in September, saying public statements by both Labor and the coalition had given him confidence that this bill was likely to pass with amendments—is that correct?
