I acknowledge the support of Deputies. We all have a job to do and there is a very important role for Deputy Cullinane and others in holding the Government to account. I wanted to make the point in my opening statement that, across the board, there has been a largely supportive response and important work done by Deputies, both in opposition and in government. I wanted to acknowledge that.

I know the test and trace issue is not the question but the Deputy raised the matter. He has raised it most weeks that we have come in here and I have heard this party leader be critical of the test and trace system as well. I would be happy to meet the Deputy and his party leader because we have looked into this and compared our testing and tracing capacity and genome sequencing capacity-----
