Just before we turn to Ms. O'Connell, I do have a couple of questions on this area.
You said there is a real drop in the value of these taxes, but that's the minister's decision in any budget. If there is a real drop based on what departmental officials are coming forward with to the minister, the minister can—is it not correct?—impose or bring in a budget with a stated value of excises taxes to cover that.
We don't need the inflationary adjustment in order to accommodate that drop in value. The minister can make that decision at any time he so decides in a budget, can he not?
