Senator LINES (Western Australia) (10:34): Thank you. I do not want to press the point, but there is a difference between collaboration and cultural appropriateness. I am really trying to get to whether the evaluation will be done in a culturally appropriate way. If so, what is that? I do not think it is acceptable to say to me, 'Trust the government. We'll do it in a way that is.' Well—I have not heard the minister say it will be done in a culturally appropriate way, but just saying that it will be done 'collaboratively' is not saying that it will be done in a 'culturally appropriate' way. They are—or they can be—entirely different concepts. I asked about cultural appropriateness.
