Dr NELSON (Minister for Defence) (7:44 PM) —If the ANAO is going to receive additional funding, it is not likely to come from my portfolio. Certainly we cooperate fully with the Australian National Audit Office. In fact, we are very happy with the ANAO examining any project or as many projects as it feels it needs to examine, and it does so fastidiously. I have met with the Auditor-General and his key staff who work in Defence. At this stage, I am not intending to shift much needed Defence resources from Defence to the ANAO, which, from my perspective, is doing an extremely good job, as is the Joint Committee of Public Accounts and Audit.
