Mr RUDDOCK (Minister for Immigration and Multicultural and Indigenous Affairs and Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for Reconciliation) (10:26 AM) —I think it is important that ATSIS employs Indigenous people. ATSIS will operate under the Department of Finance and Administration guidelines. They set out the lines of responsibility, and the lines of responsibility go to the CEO. I am advised that ATSIS will not be permitted, under their delegation, to fund an organisation in which ATSIS delegates have a political, financial or family interest.
