Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (20:48): I heard what you have said, and I heard what you just said then; but is not the court of public opinion, and the royal commission recommendation, a pretty strong compulsion for the organisations that were responsible for this abuse to actually meet a $200,000 cap, which the royal commission recommended, rather than the $150,000 cap?

In other words, you had, I'd say, the weight of the Australian community behind the government in negotiating with these institutions where this abuse occurred. Is that not correct?
