Senator TROETH (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry) (1:11 PM) —In response to Senator O'Brien, I thought what I had said was perfectly clear. The program costs during 2003-04, including the proposed enhancements, are to be met from within existing budgeted expenditure levels under our current package. The government has allocated $20.7 million in 2004-05 for the Farm Help program for those on Farm Help before 30 June 2004—that is, up to that point. The future of Farm Help for new applicants beyond 30 June 2004 will be considered as part of our new package, or in the context of a new AAA package.
