Senator HANSON-YOUNG (South Australia) (10:55): I hate to say it, but that's not very illuminative in terms of why it is $50 million. Is that all the Treasurer let you have, a measly $50 million for your negotiations? Is that what happened or is that just loose change at the back of the couch that you had left over from something else? If we are serious about the demise of public interest journalism in this country, why is it only $50 million? If you're genuinely interested in making sure you protect Australian journalists' jobs, why is it only $50 million?
