Senator FIFIELD (VictoriaManager of Government Business in the Senate, Minister for Communications, Minister for the Arts and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Digital Government) (11:00): I do not think I raised my voice. I think I was expressing surprise in my voice, but I did not raise my voice.

The point I am making is that there will be appropriate arrangements to make sure that people can get replacement cards. We will make sure that in consultation with the community there are arrangements that satisfy the community. Why you would think that we would do anything other than seek to put in place arrangements through consultation with the community that satisfy the community I am not too sure. Given your interest in these particular aspects, I am sure that the minister would be very happy to provide a briefing for you that goes into the detail of what will happen from the moment someone losses a card to when they get their replacement card.
