Senator CONROY (Minister for Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy) (5:59 PM) —The price of vehicles, as Senator Abetz well knows, is publicly available. I am pleased to see that the member for Wentworth’s habits are catching on already—he likes to quote himself, and Senator Abetz likes to ask himself questions. As I said, and maybe you misheard, the data that goes into the Treasury modelling is not publicly available. I do not think I can be clearer than that, Senator Abetz. I do not think it is a deceptive answer; I am simply making the point that the model itself and the data that goes into the modelling are not publicly available.
