Senator VANSTONE (Minister for Employment, Education, Training and Youth Affairs)(6.23 p.m.) —Senator, I do not think you can compare the two totals. I think you agreed that one is in out-term prices and one is in 1996 prices. We are not comparing like with like here. Of course, you are looking simply at implemented measures; you are not looking at policy decisions made, for example, for continuation of supplementation. You do not factor that in. You are just making an assessment on the negatives. That is what they are. No-one has tried to hide anything in that respect at all.
