Mr HARDGRAVE (Minister for Citizenship and Multicultural Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister) (7:48 PM) —I have made myself available, but it is disappointing that no-one from the opposition wants to talk to us about PM&C matters. I guess the general confusion that exists within the Australian Labor Party about details has extended to the fact that they do not want to talk to one of the key coordinating departments in the government. After the Prime Minister I am the next senior person in that department. I rest my case—the opposition are not fit for government; they are not interested in pursuing this detail. I am not surprised there is no-one here.

Proposed expenditure agreed to.

Department of the Treasury

Proposed expenditure, $3,055,457,000.
