MADAM SPEAKER: Point of order, Mr Coe.
Mr Coe: Madam Speaker, the specific question that Mrs Kikkert asked was about what advice the minister gave the Minister for Multicultural Affairs. Whilst he spoke about his agency working in collaboration, he has not yet answered what advice he has provided to the other minister.
MADAM SPEAKER: Mr Coe, the minister has 30 seconds left if he wanted to get to that. Mrs Kikkert, a supplementary.
MRS KIKKERT: Sorry, I did not hear the answer. Was that a yes or a no?
Mr Parton: He doesn’t wish to answer.
MRS KIKKERT: Can you take it on notice, then?

Mrs Kikkert: You cannot take it on notice?
MADAM SPEAKER: His answer has been concluded, so a supplementary—

Mr Coe: All of them preferably.
MR RAMSAY: My understanding—
