Mr STEPHEN JONES (Throsby) (16:46): I would like to hear more from the minister in relation to the Closing the Gap targets. I acknowledge that the government has done a lot in this area. I am particularly interested in measures included in this budget which will help us close the gap, particularly in the area of health but also in related areas. Will the minister update the House in respect of the Closing the Gap payments, and whether there are any risks associated and alternative policies in this area.
