Mr McMULLAN (Parliamentary Secretary for International Development Assistance) (7:03 PM) —I did say previously—and I am not meaning this to be critical, but I think you were distracted by one of your colleagues—that the funding for the final two years will be considered in the 2011-12 budget. I do not accept the thesis about this indirect cost. The ODA is not being driven by that; it is being driven by the arithmetic I described, so I do not accept that thesis. We will certainly have to be, will be, and are happy to be transparent about the direct costs. The next two years are reflected in this budget and the others will be in the 2011-12 budget.
