Mr McGauran (Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) —The answer to the honourable member’s question is as follows:

(a) to (c) Details relating to contracts over $100,000 for which the description of the contract is stated as ‘contractors’ are currently with the tabling office and will be available on the Department’s internet site at (http://www.daff.gov.au).
