Mr ACTING SPEAKER —Yesterday following question time, the member for Wills asked me to advise the House of the cost of the Which restaurant guide, which is available on the parliamentary computing network. I am advised that the guide was included because, as honourable members would be aware, members and senators and their staff are often required to travel interstate. The guide was added for their convenience in the same way as the Ansett Travel Planner is available on the system. I am advised that the total annual licence fee for the Which restaurant guide is $200 and that the fee is paid by the Department of the Parliamentary Reporting Staff. There are no other costs associated with its provision, nor does its availability have any effect on the speed or operational capability of the network.
