Ms RISHWORTH (Kingston) (16:24): On indulgence—I haven't had the chance to read the defence community's response to the ministerial challenge; I've only just received it. But I would say in very, very brief comments that I certainly value my engagement with the ex-service community and I think the best outcomes are served if everyone is pulling in the same direction and coordinating their response. Government and opposition can only get the policy and the policy settings right with a vibrant ex-service community that does give free and frank advice. So I certainly look forward to considering the defence community's response to the ministerial challenge and my ongoing engagement with them.
