Senator SINODINOS (New South WalesMinister for Industry, Innovation and Science) (14:46): We are already providing major funds to help the diversification of the auto component makers. What we will also do in the period ahead, as I said, is make sure that intensive employment assistance is available to workers going forward. This is on top of the money that the companies themselves are providing, and rightly should provide, because they have a responsibility to those workers. They have made the decision to go and they have a responsibility to those workers. Toyota and Holden have provided money and Ford has been providing money, and we will ensure that that money is appropriately used as part of a framework to promote local employment.
