Senator BUTTON (Minister for Industry and Commerce)(11.22) —I reiterate to Senator Chaney that the figure of $270m which I mentioned was an approximate figure. I do not wish to be held to it in precise detail. With respect to the point of this question, the answer is yes because some of the moneys are paid to organisations and so on. It is difficult at this stage to say precisely how that money is translated in terms of employment in each particular project. But, once again, the Department has undertaken to give Senator Chaney a note on this matter and I will see that that is provided.

Proposed expenditure agreed to.

Department of Communications

Proposed expenditure, $16,043,000.
