Senator BUTTON (Minister for Industry and Commerce and Minister Assisting the Minister for Communications)(11.29) —I am not able to answer at the moment the specific question about intentions relating to the legal section of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Again, we can certainly get some information on that question. Senator Sir John Carrick will no doubt be aware that a substantial process of restructuring is taking place within the ABC. I think he would share the view that that is desirable. In relation to the question about the white envelopes, as the honourable senator put it in his question, in general the answer is yes.
