Mrs BISHOP (Minister for Defence Industry, Science and Personnel)(12.33 p.m.) —I just have to correct the misunderstanding of the honourable member for Brisbane (Mr Bevis) of that subsequent letter in the Canberra Times . If you look at it and you look at the dates he talks about, he is not talking about the scheme we are discussing and debating here today. He is discussing the scheme of the $25,000—the old scheme—which has not been changed and was not proposed to be changed. So kindly don't mislead the House into thinking that somebody else was writing about this magical date that you are talking about. The fact of the matter is we promised a better package. We are delivering that better package, and the quicker we can get it through the parliament the quicker people will have access to it.
