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) (11:16): Your specific question, Senator, goes to: when someone gets advice that they are not compliant, how many weeks will it be before they could potentially lose a payment? Obviously, in the case of the end-of-year supplement, the reconciliations will happen at the end of the year. I cannot give you any more specific advice at this point about what period of time there might be between when someone receives a letter and something happening, because you have got the end-of-year supplement, which is a reconciliation at the end of the year. You have got individual's birth dates, which determine when various vaccinations are required. I know what you are seeking but I just cannot give you a definitive time frame at this point in time.
