Senator SIEWERT (Western AustraliaAustralian Greens Whip) (21:39): I'm hoping this will be my last question or two in terms of counselling and psychological services. So there's the minimum of 20, and there's the $5,000 maximum of the tiered payments. It seems to me that there's a potential large discrepancy here between the states that opt in to be the providers and those that don't, and those that get access to the $1,250, the $2,500 and the $5,000. That $5,000 isn't going to go very far, so there's going to be a discrepancy depending on where you live. Is that correct?
